I want to get ERA to fab it up and use their own supply of connectors
If it wasn’t for electrical issues I wouldn’t have many issues. Setting the timing on my car this morning and noticed the orange wire to the alternator had fried insulation.
I started disconnecting wires and found the orange wire was very loose. How it didn’t get tight or loosened I don’t know. I stripped about 2 to 2-1/2 inches of crispy insulation back and that appears to be as far as it went. All the other wires look fine. I’m suspecting that due to the loose connection I was getting arcing across the wire connector and alt terminal that generated the heat to melt the insulation. I’ve noticed lately some jittery movement in the amp gage so I suspect that was from it also. All sound reasonable??
I wrapped the wire back up and put a couple layers of heat shrink tubing over it all, cleaned the terminal and bolted it back tight – this time with a tooth washer for good measure.
