you don't need 7mm . . . . . any diamter will work (it's mostly insulation) . . . . ..

Caps, resstance . . . . .doesn't make a great deal differnece either.

If you are wanting to make up your own set, grab the old set, and find the local hotrod shop . . . .. they'll have all sorts of high-zoot wire and caps . . . . .

and not so high zoot, which will likely work just as well for your application.
