1. Binding. Cables shall be bound together with one-half overlapping turns of electrical insula-
Do not distort skirts of pin contacts (MS27148) when crimping to conductors.
2. Crimping. Crimp pin contacts (ferrules), terminals, and splicing connectors to cables (con-
ductors and/or insulation).
3. Soldering. Solder conductors to pin and socket contacts and solder-type terminals and termi-
nal assemblies in accordance with TM 9-237.
a. Spliced conductors must be adequately insulated and the insulation must be sealed to each
b. Vulcanize splices using solid rubber sheet (Item 21, Appendix E). Thickness of rubber over
exposed conductors will be 1/8-5/32 in. (3.18 to 3.97 mm) and is to overlap adjacent insulation for
a distance of at least 3/16 in. (4.76 mm) and a minimum thickness of 1/32 in. (0.79 mm).
5. Plugging. Plug all spare grommet holes with rod of diameter and length as required.
