Where do you want to use it. I think the only place I've seen it is on the temp sender wire...Joe

I have Never known the Asphalt Cloth to be "Split", it is woven and does not hold shape when spilt axially. They do make a modern corrugated plastic tubing that is split.

Ebay, American Auto Wire and Local Swap meets are good sources for this item, I have had trouble sourcing locally & often get a blank stare at my Counter man when searching for the Gooey Cloth.

I this used in basically two places on the F Body: Temp Sender and the Start leads.

A friendly suggestion for hiding the pertronix lead would be to procure some Harness (NON ADHESIVE) Tapes and re-wrap or over wrap as needed.

If you only need the asphalt cloth, HERE'S The Truck and Car Shop's offering (see below). Check out page 204, P/N 67-16701 for a whopping 4 bucks. Classic Industries probably carries it as well as most other vendors.
