An electric soldering iron will be fine if you have one. If not, they're cheap. The heat shrink tubing can be shrunk with a hair dryer on high, or if you're real careful, a bic lighter.

I think it was kitty kat that migrated from Arkansas. Not 100% sure but a hunch.
Waiting for parts to arrive and the work will begin. This shouldn't be too difficult knowing my soldering skills you already saw.

Guys I soldered all cables and shrinked wrapped it. She started and she's running, however i noticed one more cable chewed up. The hole in the middle between two injectors. What is that and is black (I'm assuming ground) cable gone? I will post some more detailed.

Re: Tree animals eat my fuel injector cables and one more? Hellpppppppp

Here are two pictures of another chewed up cable. It seems yellow one is still connected but not in good shape. Is this an issue going forward with winters, humidity etc? Also no idea what that cable connects to and what it's function is?

Rather than risk breakdown at the most inopportune moment, just go ahead and repair the other wire, even though its not completely chewed through. I'm thinking you had a mouse, because a cat would not be able to get their head thru the manifold to chew that last one.

Jay i was joking with Arky about the kitty kat. It most likely was a squarl as few friends of mine had same situation. Do you know what that cable connects to? Is there a black (negative or ground) cable there as well?

I have no idea, I've never owned anything similar to that car.

On my 1987 Honda D series engine, the oil pressure warning switch is located in that area (just above the oil filter). There is an oil passage that runs up the middle of the rear of the block to supply the cam and valve train.
