Re: Marine/Aviation Grade Wire Termination

Brad,

Excellent info!

How many Merkurs are suffering from inadequate electrical wiring repairs, rather than ng components? Too many people blame the component rather than first identifying proper grounding and sufficient voltage to the component.

Re: Scorpio ABS sensor substitution

If I remember correctly, when I removed them from a donor, all 4 cables were of different length. From shortest to longest: Left/front, right/front, left/rear, right/rear. Jeff Herson & Jan Talian should know for certain.

Re: Scorpio ABS sensor substitution

FYI It's my understanding, the wires [ABS to wheel] are wheel specific, but that may only be due to different lengths.
