SPLICING - CONTINUED
To heat shrink wrap a splice:
Select correct diameter to allow a tight wrap when heated. Heat shrink wrap MUST be long enough to
overlap wire insulation about 1/4 in (6.4 mm) on both sides of splice.
Heat shrink wrap with a heat gun; do not concentrate heat in one location, but play heat over entire length
of shrink wrap until joint is complete.
Splicing Multiple Broken Wires.
Stagger position of each splice as illustrated (Figure 20).
You MUST stagger positions to prevent a large bulge in harness and to prevent wires from chafing against each
