Wiring question

Postby Boomer » Mon Aug 08, 2011 2:38 am

in the process of crimping all the cut wires to a gearbox i had a thought. would it be possible if i could use a thicker wire (the kind you would use if you were wiring house lights, the kind thats pretty thick and bends) for the rear two wires leading to the battery? its still copper but its just not in a bunch of tiny strands.
Thoughts?
Would it work?
Thanks

Yes, it will works well inside the gearbox because it holds its shape so well, and has some electrical advantatges like low resistance better amperage and such. I wouldn't use it outside of the gearbox because since it isn't very flexable and will break if it bends alot.

The wire i am looking at is made to bend and hold its shape. all it will be doing is laying on the bottom of a full/fixed stalk. thanks for the info though
