rkfitz is on a distinguished road
Anyone try using dielectric paste on crimp on terminals? All of the wiring in my P323 is aftermarket, none of it marine grade. Rather than rewire, I thought I'd renew the connections, applying a light coating to the copper wire before crimping. I'll let you all know how it worked in a few years. By the way, I have and use both crimpers in my trade, but the ratcheting (or compound) crimper gives a far superior connection. I can pull apart most hand crimped connections with a couple of linesman's pliers, never been able to do it with a compound crimper.
