Exclamation Learn how-to solder.

I recently got back into soldering since I was back in highschool a/c refrigeration course and thought this might be of some use to you do it yourselfers here. Enjoy http://fordfuelinjection.com/?p=7

civicduty -

Thanks, I printed it out. I had never seen an "inline" connection like that before. I have become a recent fan of heat shrink tubing because it makes everything look so clean and professional.

I've used that sort of connection before: it works well for any stranded wire that you'd want to solder.

One place to get the adhesive heat-shrink tubing is Waytek Wire. They're usually cheaper than other places, and have a nice selection of automotive-type electrics.

Yes definetely! I'm all for the clean functional look and heat shrink always accomplishes that, hopefully that tech doc will be of some use to you.

another thing to try is a highwattage hair dryer.

i use the ol solder then wrap in electrical tape if its in the car. if its under the hood i either use crimp on connectors or very rarely heatshrink tubing...havent had a problem yet. but they all do the same thing: connect wires. so it doesnt matter what you do as long as its insulated and make sa good connection
