Insulated ring terminals should meet MS25036. There are similar milspecs for other connection styles and for uninsulated terminals.

I have dual "P" mags with 9:1 pistons, performance cam, ventury cut seats, etc. I run BR9ES plugs, a bit cooler. NGK plugs of the same number, ie
BR8ES can come with screw on caps or solid caps. If the screw on caps get loose, it will cause radio noise, and burn areas on the plug end connector of the spark plug wire. Will run rough at altitude. Using the solid plug caps and new terminal ends, runs great!!

Righto, badly worded. I'm trying to point out that both PIDG and AVIKRIMP brands are acceptable for various terminals and that they meet milspecs.

Thanks, Vern

This video shows how to join wires together using "solder sleeves", the original design idea.

Ya Gotta love youtube...

Never seen a 'solder sleeve' called out for a splice repair in any document I've ever seen. On the other hand I have repaired a few bad/cold solder joints where this method was used for a CAN bus and a few other things.

Just the fact that it would take me 10x longer and 3 hands to do what an amp butt splice can do in seconds with 100% reliability is a good enough reason not to use it.

FWIW I also prefer a butt splice but solder sleeves can and do work.

BTW, awesome "thread drift".

The 3 hands part is my main complaint - you think you have it stable, put the heat gun on, and it all moves.

Default E-Mag Install Manual

From the "Maintenance" section of the E-Mag manual:

Every annual or 100 hour inspection:

6. Examine control plug and coil plug connections. Tighten to 4-5 inch pounds. Verify there are no stray wire strands. Verify all control wires use the Adel clamp strain relief.

The control plug needs an eyes-on every time the cowl comes off, IMO. I have a short list of things like this I look at each time it does on mine. Just to be sure.

I like the ferrule idea...neat....clean...secure.
