Default Re: Cable upgrade

Soldering 101.
Good hot soldering iron - or - propane tourch (is better)
Good solder - resin core - Not Acid
Flux cleaner - a inexpensive can of flux cleaner is best (small can) $2.00
A place to hold parts in place.

Dip end 1/2" to 3/4" of wire cable into Flux cleaner -
Dip or brush on a small amount of Flux cleaner on Connector surface to be soldered.
If this is insertion connector(Not recommended) then coat the inside of connector with Flux cleaner.

Crimp cable into position if you have Open Ended Connector.
Now apply Heat to connector and Tip end of Wire junction at the same time,
Flux should melt and become shiny,
Take solder and touch it to the wire and connector junction , (if it starts to flow smoothly) let it crawl up the wire until it reaches all the way through the connector cremp . Don't supply too much heat or the insolation may start melting.
Remove heat and allow to cool.

Note: if you are using a insertion type end, it is more complicated but can
still be done
Follow same instructions except before inserting and cremping, drill a small 1/16'
hole about a quarter ways down from top ,
then Cremp then heat the connector place solder at the drilled hole
and allow solder to flow through the hole on to wire and inside connector.

Get a couple extra short pieces of wire and a couple extra connectors to practice on, you will know when U have it , because it will just look right
The ends / solder will be shiny (no big clumps ) and you will be able to see the strands (sorta) and the end of the Wire)

Good Luck !

With the insertion type I just set it in vice grips melt solder into it with propane torch, heat the wire some and stick it in the liquid solder. Right or wrong it's worked for me for years.

Hey Jim C as th old saying goes there is more than 1 way to shin a cat.

It's just I like to also have these Clamped for a little extra strength
and its hard to do after soldering.

But Hey, if it works do it.

If store bought cables are a little longer (4") does it hurt anything?

That shouldn't make a difference, I made mine a little longer so they weren't ran across the covers and I can conveniently remove the covers to check fluid level.

Hey dont worry about the # of strands of wire as much as , the Gauage is the important
thing when it comes to the electrical rating.
Strand count in DC applications is not critical
But in AC or Signal applications where what is known as the Skin Effect comes into play
it matters,
It does however make the cable more flexable and thicker but
350 strand and 600 will carry the same amount of current.
