Finally got sick of my 'Runner cutting out on me. Took the upper intake off and BOY! All the black crud in the runners! Anyways, I found previously by squeezing the harness where it goes into the intake manifold "gap", I could get the truck to run on a couple of cylinders, eventually cutting out and dying. This has been ongoing for the past couple of months, and it seemed to have precipitated after a friend cleaned my motor with some potent red colored degreaser. Coincidence?
I basically want to know if I should use butt connectors and what type of wire to use when splicing. Kinda paranoid about screwing things up, as I have this propensity to break other stuff while doing repairs . Will be using shrink wrap over all splices and .062 rosin core solder. What kind of electrical tape will hold up best to the heat and the elements? I saw some rubber tape with mastic adhesive at Lowe's, maybe that'd work in conjuction with electrical tape over it???
Now back to work - gonna get the fuel rail off so I can send the injectors out for a clean and balancing...
