I'm going to have to lengthen several wires so I'll need to certainly do some quality splicing.

I'm now seeing that.  The solder and heat shrink say "Obsolete" by them.  I'm going to call when they are open to find out what the deal is.  That was the biggest draw of their products.  I learned about them be cause West Coast Customs used them to easily wire up all of their LED and neon lights and other accessories.

They seem to be readily available on amazon, but I'm leery about that obsolete tag. Out of stock, currently unavailable, that would be another thing.   From what I am reading on line the non-crimp soldered connections are more prone to failure due to wire fatigue.

Ok, I've been going over their website and have found that they still have the terminals I use.  I use the 3 function crimp, solder, and heat shrink terminals.  These connectors allow you to crimp to hold the terminal in place so you don't have to worry about it coming off or moving positions while you then use heat to shrink the heat shrink sleeve and melt the solder.  

I was initially confused looking at the 2 function solder and heat shrink terminals as some of those have been obsoleted.  They are probably phasing those out because they are harder to work with without the crimp.

I don't know if you would be interested in buying individual packaged terminals or an entire kit?  Looking at the kits, I also see that they changed from lead containing solder to lead free.  The 200 pc kit was obsoleted because it was lead solder terminals that are no long sold, The lead free 200 pc kit is there though.  I don't think we'll see any installation or performance difference.  In any case, there are crimp, heat shrink, and solder kits available.  I bought a big kit initially to get started.  They are more expensive than the cheap auto parts store terminals, but I think the easy of use and weather tight features make it worth the money.

Here are the butt connectors:

All the other terminal configurations are there in Crimp, solder, heat shrink.

I think they made their website a little confusing by leaving the obsolete items there.

I started the mustang up and ran it a little before  I get in there and disable it to rewire. I recorded a couple revs.  Man, there appears to be some power lurking in there! Note I had to kill the fuel pump after shutdown. Me no like.

those connectors sound great. Car sounds great.  When you say "kill the fuel pump"  are you just rewiring it.

Adding a tach relay. Relay when triggered runs fuel pump 3 seconds. Then stops until the engine fires. The relay is wired to the tach lead. It will energize the pump as long as there is tach signal. If the engine dies, the relay closes killing the pump.

Yes. You need a way to shut the fuel off. A mechanical pump obviously stops when the engine does. This one wired to a hot toggle scares me.

thanks, it is good to learn something everyday.  Great car and glad it is maken you happy!  in the old days there was room under your seat.  my bother had a metal drawer under his seat with a switch that ran off the tail light current.  it had a solenoid style latch like for rods with the shaved doors.  the drawer was spring loaded to open when the latch was triggered.  he kept his self defense weapon in there.  If he was at the side of the road, he could flip the switch, and then if he touched the brake , the drawer/gun safe popped open from under the seat between his legs.  secure, but easy access.

They make a switch that works on loss of oil pressure as well, but I figure the less little oil lines running about the better

Anyone know what the extra blue and green wire might be for on the electric fan relay?  They are just folded up and taped to the harness.  There is a black ground, an orange power to the fan, a red power to the battery, and a grey wire going to the temp sensor in the intake manifold. I have no idea what the unused wires would be for.

Could it be for an A/C system? They’ll usually turn the fan on when the ac compressor turns on.

What better way to start to clean up automotive wiring than with a travel soap dish.

This is to convert part of this mess, multiple wires with inline fuses, to one battery feed wire to three self resetting breakers for fan, waterpump and fuel pump.

Used it just once to make that 2ga cable. Got it for less than 25 bucks at harbor freight. I have some winch cables to fix, so I figure it will get used more. I have some ground cables to make yet as well.

looks like the right tool for the job.  You are doing it right.  If you use it 25 times in your life, that is only $1 per connection.

I like clean wiring and your looks clean! Most folks would just add to the nest, I’m glad you have pride! Now you just need to get an interstate battery in that car to run all the extras :-)
