"Interesting what some people get hot about. Yes, it is just a bilge pump and almost anyway will work. I have been known to cut corners in the past and do a quick repair in an inappropriate manner… and have almost always lived to regret it. I don’t know, maybe I’m just lazy, but I prefer to do a repair only once"

Dave, I wasn't suggesting that it's ok to to a half-assed job. I was only saying that it's kinda silly to get so worked up about how to wire a bilge pump.
I usually always use heat shrink butt connectors for an application like this. But I am sure that someone with a modicum of common sense could do a pretty good job with a little solder, shrink tubing and wire ties.
