SPLICING OF WIRING.
To repair broken or cut wires that are otherwise sound, the mating ends can be
stripped and spliced.
A commercial butt splice can be crimped onto the ends to join them, or a wire
splice can be made.
A wire splice is made by stripping 1-1/4 inch of insulation from wire ends,
holding the ends parallel and facing opposite directions, then twisting each end around the
other wire at least three turns.
To install a terminal on end of a wire, strip 1/4 1/2 inch of insulation from the
end of the wire.
Apply a linch piece of heat-shrink tubing (if the terminals are of the
uninsulated type), and insert the wire end into the shank of the terminal.
Crimp the shank.
Install heat-shrink tubing if necessary.
The preferred method of insulating electrical connections is by the use of
To apply, cut a piece of heat-shrink tubing of suitable diameter to a linch
length for covering joints at terminals or connectors or to a length about 1/2 longer than the
joint to be insulated.
Slide the tubing over the wire before making the joint.
After the joint is made, slide the tubing over the joint. Using a heat gun, shrink
in place with moderate heat.
