X-Trainer Capacitor/Diode Failure

23 posts in this topic

I am cutting off the factory shrink tube & crimps & re-crimping with heat shrink connectors with adhesive & then covering with heat shrink tubing for additional protection, also in case I pierced the insulation on the crimp & in case I wasn't careful enough putting the dielectric grease covered wires in the crimps since the adhesive doesn't stick on silicone covered wires. They aren't designed to be used with grease but I wanted to. I have been trying to be very careful with the grease & wiping with alcohol before heating & keeping the wires from touching the sides as I put the crimp on. Then I am rewrapping it with split loom & zip ties following my rough tracing & photos before disassembly. For the non-waterproof connections I will either fill with grease & shrink tube the ends to keep it from washing out or when I am connecting the plugs, I will heat shrink them with non adhesive (So it can be cut off) tubing over the entire connection to hold it together & keep the grease from washing out.
