      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

tip for plug boots

5 posts in this topic

Posted

This is not a fancy or high profile tip...but merely something that I do to help me and thought I would pass it on to the "family" here.

When you are doing plug wires and you are using a larger wire's insulation for the boot material...

After you have cut the boot material into the lengths that you will be using, slide all of the boots onto a straight pin.

It will stretch the insulation just enough to slide easily onto the plug wires.

Like I said, nothing fancy, but it works.

if you buy prewired they come with booth material

if your building you own just find a larger gauge wire then the plugs and strip that wire

then you can use the insulation as booths

I use the Radio Shack 30 AWG wrapping wire and telephone wire for the insulation. You need a pretty good size pin or needle to stretch it to fit.
