When splicing wires i always prefer soldering. Use some shrink tubing over the connection and you'll have a solid waterproof connection.Player said:I'm doing the bullet turn signal kit and need to crimp connectors to the wires. Is it okay to cut off the tabs and just solder the wires? The crimp tool seems to fold over the metal tabs to make the connection. Thanks.
YES!!!! That's what I was going to recommend. I have one and it works great. Practice with a few crimps first to get the hang of it. Once you do get the hang of it, the crimps are strong and look like they came from the factory. Also... solder where needed and use heat shrink over it.Player said:I ordered from Toolsource.com an S&G Ratcheting Terminal Crimper for Weatherpack Terminals, pn 96175.
As for other specialized Harley Tools... check George's Garage. He's a sponsor here and His tools are as good or better than the factory supplied ones.Player said:Fellas, what's a good online source for Harley tools? I'm looking for a Crimp tool #HD-4109. Thanks.
