Needed a good way to seal up the branches of my wiring harness. Raychem seems to be the only game in town for quality Made in USA heat shrink boots, but $31.00 ugh! Pics soon™
Spent the day trying not to burst in to flames, OMG hot! Managed to make a little progress on the engine bay wiring.
Started with this.
Mid way through, closeups of injector and coil connectors.
Testing placement, loom and other cleanup will be later
Originally I spent a pile of money on a fancy Delphi “mil-spec” connector to run my Megasquirt. Just ended up getting frustrated with the quality of some of the tools (I am looking at you stupid plastic pin remover that I bought like 4 times…) and overall price of the parts.
So now I am simply going to run the Megasquirt harness straight from the Megasquirt in the truck to Weather/Metripack connectors in the engine bay using this simple, but effective firewall grommet.
Picked a couple of these up, apparently a lot of the Megasquirt guys have reported issues with the cheap Ebay GM knock off units. They are a bit pricey, but made well and apparently very accurate. We shall see.
Love this thing, used it on some Metri-Pack 630 connectors. One pass crimps
Works well on non-insulated butt connectors too
So yeah, I’ve been using them for several years to host images of all kinds, but mainly to document a few of my vehicle builds. Well with pretty much no warning PB up and decided to not allow “3rd party hosting”. I get it, they have bills to pay and the bandwidth was probably eating them up, but how about a warning? How about not being assclowns and holding my pictures hostage?
Well F those guys, I am going to try to reorganize here.
