i noticed when mine is running the spark plug boot on number 7 is so close to my gear box it has an arc between them, surely this can't be good but it does seem to hurt it. I really don't want to have to relocate the steering and gear box. what do you guys suggest? maybe shorter spark plugs sbc 327. :confused:

Seems like you might need new wires. Good wires and boots should not arc to anything, ever. Get silicone wires designed for hi-voltage ignition that are the right length.

Thats what I was going to say. It sounds like good advice to me.
