    We use 100ohm resistors (see diagram attatched).

    Our crimper is a genuine Packard one, and as such is quite expensive at $400 compared to other options.

    Tefzel wire, plugs, connectors etc. I get either from here (MoTeC) or from GR Motorsport electrics. Gary has a bigger selection than what we sell here.

    Attached also are ssome photos of what your finished crimps should look like.

      bev, how much / who did you buy your deutsch crimping tools for / from?
      Tool frame, turrets and positioners I use are all made by DMC.

          Bev, do you use a DMC AF8 M22520/1-01 or 2-01 for most of your wiring?

              one thing i like to do when using heat shrink is to put a dab of glue in either end of the shrink before i heat it so it seals water tight
