or use an anvil or a hard place (bench top perhaps) lay the terminal flat on the bench, slide the cable into the frigging terminal... using a center punch and a hammer, locate the center of the crush sleve, center the punch and strike with hammer.... repeat last step as necesary.... or come back to the shop with me this evening I will do it for ya.... I have the shit I just suggested except the terminal...
before you ask, no I dont have a crimper for a wire that size.
No punching just wasted 2 $ 9.00 crimps

I like the idea of the soldering.. might try that ..... " need to find the number for the local fire department "

Help?

Still need bodies to help me finish demolition on the 109. Hard part's over, body is apart and off the frame. Just need to poach the axles out of the RRC LWB and unrivet about ten thousand rivets.

Overnight accommodations, hearty meals, plenty of beer, soaring eagles, waterfront property, kayaks, tractors, chainsaws, chippers....wait that's a different project.
