UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE IGNITION CABLE John P. Ryzowitz, Wallington, N. 1., assigner to The Okonite Company, Passaic, N. 1., a corporation of New Jersey Application May 24, 1941, Serial No. 395,015 1 Claim. (01. 174-110) My invention is directed to an improvement in fixed cable size is best accomplished by using the ignition cables for internal combustion engines, smallest conductor practicable.

The usual ignition cable merely comprises an and while some contend that radio interference insulated copper conductor. Such a cable has is reduced by employing a high resistance conlittle tensile strength and for this reason trouble ductor such as steel, it is very evident that radio is experienced with rupturing of the cable when interference is not a problem where, as is the it is pulled into the usual shielding harness so usual case in modern practice, the cable is inoften employed in practice, particularly in airstalled in metal shielding harness.
