Question Spark plug terminals in Helmet dizzy cap?

Wondering if anyone runs anything other than straight spark plug wire terminals on the distributor ends; like a 90 degree or 45 degree on a Helmet Style Dizzy setup?

Re: starting problems

a) have a firewall resistor, if so ck that
b) bad coil, ck that
c) wiring to one of the above, ck that
d) dizzy issues, ck that


Has to be one of those for no spark, IMHO
