Re: Crimping versus Soldering

I'm working on my cal 25 just bought , had some ground ishews found the problems were crimp conectors not properly crimped or viberation, I see a lot of this in the automotive industry over the past 35 years.
The reason that a wire might break before or after a solder joint is when soldering your getting the wire to hot witch causes the wire to get brittle. Here is what I use solderseal but splice conectors you can buy at Amazon. All you need to due is heat it up with a heat gun, it solders and seals it all in one. you can buy a heat gun at harbor freight for 14dollors.
