    I bet someone has done that repair before. same problem?

  2. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John O says:

    Must have been a capybara. Btw, that's old school electric tape, also good for wrapping hockey sticks.

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew_koala says:

    Conical tips on SOLD-ERING irons are essentially useless
    What is required is a 'chisel tip '
    In any event – crimping the wires together is the better solution –
    and also quicker – and is the preferred method in Electrical trades.

    Good video very informative I'll stay away from jaguars

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars D Jelonek says:

    No issues with your soldering, basically, as long as it's not a cold joint, it's fine. Only thing I'd add, as an ex-tractor guy who has seen his share of GREEN wire…. if your gonna use the cheap heat shrink (one without the glue in it), might add a bit of silicone (whatever is handy at hand) over the joint before shrinking it down. Helps keep the green wire rust away…. still no solution for flash light gravity thou, been the death of many a light for me.

    thank you ray for me watching you watching

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Wuest says:

    I see you have the new glove ventilation system employed!

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ghost Shadow says:

    they make a razor with a hook only cuts inside the hook so can just hook the opening and pull, slices the loom open and doesn't cut wires.
    they have a vegetable based insulation for wires, rodents love it.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ghost Shadow says:

    Had that issue with squirrels, massive over population problem, 400 removed in 2 months.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Phillip Lopez says:

    It is called " friction tape "

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Paul Moffat says:

    'Of Mice and Wires' – I have heard that some automotive manufacturers have gone to Soy Based insulation on their wires, so they can be called 'environmentally friendly'.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tony Gingrich says:

    People sweat soldering techniques too much. At the end of the day; conductivity is conductivity, and security is security. Current doesn't care about vanity.

    But I do recall one very good piece of critical guidance, specific to high current applications. Keep your wire strands as straight as possible. The more bends, twists, or loops…the more of an electromagnetic field that will be generated at the solder point. So 2 amps or less, and not near any sensitive electronic equipment…I take liberty to secure the wires as is convenient for me. I only go the extra miles of difficulty when current increases and/or in close proximity of other components.

    EM losses can also effect sensitivity of sensor circuits. But I've yet to run into those issues in my own experiences.

    doodadoodadoodadoo

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Pilgrim says:

    I don’t know when they started using it but they use soy in the wire insulation and it attracts rodents. I know there were some class action lawsuits about it as well. I think it seems like they prefer injector wiring only because it’s typically in the spots that rodents tend to be attracted to hide in like under intake manifolds and such. Honda makes some good rodent preventing electrical tape. I keep a roll for cars that have rodent problems. They use some kind of pepper in the adhesive.

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brandon Adams says:

    You need some pistol wire strippers for tight spots like that. Far superior to the one you used. MAC and Harbor Freight both make one in case you want to try the cheap version first

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Wood says:

    We just spent 2 days chasing 40 yrs worth of badges and substandard repairs and fixes in the wiring loom of a Bedford rascal

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Lawrence says:

    Soldering at the best of times makes you creative. I think you need do a great job every way you do it.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Anthony Freeman says:

    Maybe the Fuel Injector wires are “Spicy”.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ray Pellerin says:

    I am an electrician and never found a wire a rodent chewed through and have worked in the field since 1986. They cause issues chewing the insulation or building nests where wires are to keep warm. The "loom" is different too in my trade. Loom is what was used on knob and tube wiring c.1880-1930. The term come from the fact it was made of a fabric on a loom. Just different not nit picking. Really enjoy your videos. Now I need to change the master cylinder in my 2002 GMC 3500 van. Any tips? *Click* ?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tim VanLandingham says:

    Very good soldering job!

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Adkins says:

    Why not order and replace the harness?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    Tape on the injector circuit wires makes one think that a human was there before the rat.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars GARY OSBORNE says:

    Jaguar is great about packing a whole lot of “stuff” into small places……so small that even after removing the “stuff” it is still tight quarters.

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mark bolvin says:

    What is reee? Like I get it means to complain and hate on his work. But does it stand for something?

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Duffy says:

    HI Ray you could use a heat clamp to protect the insulation

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kai Syversen says:

    Newly developed blutooth injector technology. Keeping up with the modern times.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars stanley koziol says:

    you should solider using an oxi acetylene torch lol

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Fred Dyer says:

    Love your videos! Use Scotch Brand electrical tape. It won't get gooey and sticky like cheap tape. Scotch 33 for general purpose. Scotch 66 is thicker and more rugged.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Reed says:

    A Jaguar with electrical problems?
    Who knew?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Baker says:

    Reminds me – years ago, some wires got chewed on my MINI Cooper – one of which was evidently a plug wire…god knows what the others were. It drove – on three cylinders…so I figure I'll limp it the two miles to the dealership. It's a Saturday and as I arrive into the local MINI/BMW/Cadillac dealership – it's evident that the MINI techs don't work the weekend and the dealership is pretty much deserted. So I wander into the BMW area to see if someone can locate a MINI plug wire that I could swap out myself. There's BMW sales guy there so I wander over and tell him "I think a rat chewed my plug wire. Can you get me a replacement?" the BMW guy laughs and says "That might be what the MINI guys would say – but here in the BMW side of the dealership we always tell our customers that it was a squirrel – sounds so much nicer." …then from over in the Cadillac area, I hear a distant voice yell "Probably a Mink!".

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Danny Caraway says:

    The wire coating rubber is mixed with vegetable by product to stretch the rubber supply hence the aroma attracts rodents

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Peters says:

    Do critters prefer certain color wires? Such as might match food sources?

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Weninger says:

    tinny houae, not tinny price, can go +$60,000

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Weninger says:

    looks like this wires were "repaired \" before?

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hans Dorn says:

    You forgot to coat them in peanut oil.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Christopher Jackman says:

    Aka hockey tape.

    I’m helping here, though have no real car knowledge … remove the oil cap for more space.

    No test drive…coulda opened it up on the freeway…shook up the other stowaways on board…
