Subject: FTE Pre61 - Splitting the wiring

Ray the best way to split your wiring harness is to strip a small amount of
the insulation (say 10mm) from the wire that is to be continuous at the
point that you want the tee to be at and rap the stripped tail of the wire
that is going too the other set of lights and then solder this joint. You
can then tape this joint on each set of wires this gives the best and
smallest joint of all. Also if you stagger the joints in each set of wires a
little you can make the y joint in the harness very tidy.

Go to your nearest quality electronics/electrical supply store, even Home
Depot carries good quality solder on type
quick connects. You can buy a handfull for a couple of bucks. Be sure to
buy both mail and female. The more you pay.....the higher the quality.
They're even offered with vinyl sleeves to cover the connections.

Solder them in line where ever you need them and cover with a reasonably
thin coat of silicon, or that 'gooey' stuff that the car makers use (looks
like Dijon mustard) Anything to waterproof the connector. Tape, cover
with wire loom etc and you should be set. When you need to disassembly the
silicon is easy enough to remove.. Hope this helps.

Since the Lincoln steering wheel probably won't work, what are the best
recommendations for another column? I have heard some use ch*vy van columns.
I think an earlier Ford truck column would work except for trying to link up
the AOD to the C6 (or C4) linkage.

How does the 50 gauge panel come out?
Are there some type of fasteners on the edges that allow removal of the whole unit?
