spark plug wires

I put 1977 HEI ON MY 66 impala 283, WITH CAP AND WIRES that were on it.
perfect fit, long wires some 40 + ", 4 wires were 90 degree and 4 were 45 degree at the s/plug end. Old wires, used them for a year or so and its time to replace them after rebuild. Problem is i am not sure what the wires original application was. They fit well as is under the manifolds out of site. If i have to i guess i can make 90 degree ends work if the wire are long enough. Any thoughts on on year and model or brand or supplier would be helpful. Not much info in on line sales.

I would buy a universal spiral core 8 mm kit from Accel, or Taylor Wire.

Here is a stock (resistor carbon impregnated fiber glass rated at only 450 degrees) replacement set from Accel:

And here is what I would choose for you application because the wire is rated for 600 degrees and the ceramic boots can withstand 2000 degrees so your manifolds will melt into slag before the boot is burnt:

The Goldilocks middle quality boot offers 550 degree boots and wire with a spiral wound steel core that won't break down over time the way resistor wire does.

Taylor offers similar similar wiring kits but with no ceramic boots so far as I know.
