DO NOT touch heat-shrinkable tubing for at least 30 seconds after heating.
Heat-shrinkable tubing is hot and will burn you.
Use the insulation sleeving to insulate soldered and crimped electrical connections as follows:
Cut desired length of new heat-shrinkable tubing twice the length of the connection to be covered.
Slide the heat-shrinkable tubing onto the wire and out of the way before making electrical connection.
After making electrical connection, slide heat-shrinkable tubing into place over electrical connection.
Hold hot air blow gun 4 to 5 in. (10.2 to 12.7 cm) away from heat-shrinkable tubing and apply heat for
approximately 30 seconds. Stop applying heat as soon as heat-shrinkable tubing forms to the shape of
the electrical connection.

ELECTRICAL GROUND POINTS
Although battery ground cable must be connected in order to test electrical circuit
replacing parts. This will prevent shock to personnel and damage to parts and
Degreasing solvent MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and
low-toxicity material. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. The use of
protective gloves and goggles is suggested. Use in a well-ventilated area. Keep
away from open flame and other sources of ignition. When not using MIL-PRF-680
solvents, ensure MIL-PRF-680 solvent container is sealed. Store, handle, and
dispose of unused and spent solvents in accordance with local procedures and
Failure to comply may result in personnel injury and/or damage to equipment.
Many electrical problems are the result of a poor ground connection. You can ensure that ground connections are
good by performing the following steps:
Remove hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point.
Clean mounting hardware, ground cable terminal lugs, and ground point with cleaning solvent and scrub
Remove any rust with wire brush.
Look for cracks, loose terminal lugs, and stripped threads. Replace any defective parts.
Install hardware connecting ground cable terminal lug to ground point. Ensure that all hardware is tight.
