Re: Mostizzles dime

It's pretty easy to solder lugs on. Not much to mess up, melt the solder and shove the wire in. It's not like normal soldering that takes a skill not to melt the wiring and make sure the heat evenly distributes the solder. I normally use flux core solder whenever I do it.

Mo, I wish I'd known you needed some lugs, I have a bunch I don't really need just laying around.

You put a bunch of solder down in the lug, melted it with the torch, dipped the wire in flux, then pushed it in?
Yup. I tinned the wire too though.

Pretty much. I remember having 5 bucks and grabbing a pack of smokes, a pop, and still having a enough to get a couple gallons of gas.

Trying to keep the heat localized so you don't burn the shit out of the jacket on the wire and/or shrink the heat shrink tubing that has to go on before the end can be a bit challenging. I needed 4ga lugs.

Not bad, and it's a shit ton stronger than crimp on ends IMO. beandip did a little experiment on the topic of crimp vs. solder strength...

You have a good point. A hydraulic crimp is probably about as strong as solder.

Re: Mostizzles dime

Mo, I have quite large crimps, from 8ga to Kcmil stuff.

And crimp works, but solder is still better IMO, even if it's not stronger, you have a bonding material between the wire and the lug, so more surface area for the electricity to travel through than just a few contact points, and corrosion and destroy a crimped lug if not sealed properly. This is a big problem on boats, especially salt water boats.

And on the Faygo pop, it's common back home, I remember a $0.25 pop machine for Faygo, while names brands were 50 cents....so you know which one I would choose.

Hey Mo, did you ever find the clutch shield that mounts on the front of the transmission?
