    Hey guys, The other day i had to find a way to repair broken dizzy wiring on a 4age so i just cut the wiring down and repinned it, I did the same thing to my car today when i made the wiring harness so i thought id do a step by step guide for the FAQ.

    Pictured is the plug with broken/exposed wiring:



    Tools required (3mm heatshrink, Lighter or heatgun, Narva plug connector pins, Plug connector crimpers):



    Step 1, Cut off the wires and remove the grommet:



    Step 2, Remove old female terminals by using a skinny pointed object to push on the holding tab while forcing the terminal out of the back of the plug:



    (Picture of holding tab):



    Step 3, Identify the wire locations on the distributor plug (makes it easier when putting the grommet on):



    Step 4, Slide the grommet back onto the wiring harness:



    Step 5, Put heat shrink on the wires so that approx 1cm of wiring is showing and shrink it:



    Step 6, Pull the grommet back over the now heat shrink coated wiring:

    Step 7, Crimp terminals onto the wiring:



    You will end up with it looking like this:



    Step 8, Insert the terminals into the plug and push the grommet back into the plug:



    Final step, Once you have done that you will have a plug that has no breaks or exposed wiring that will be stronger than it previously was:
