The foundation for any classic car electrical system is good quality wire and connections. Improperly installed electrical wire crimp connections can lead to electrical shorts, system failures or even fire. Mark Simpson will discuss the different parts of a crimp connector and demonstrate how to install the most common types of electrical wire crimp connectors and shares tips on how to prevent damaging the wire while making crimps. He’ll also explore ways to make modern crimp connectors look at home under the hood of your car with the use of shrink tubing. Then Simpson will demonstrate how to crimp and assemble different types of multi-wire electrical quick connectors, using un-insulated crimp-on terminal clips.
