If you have deep pockets and don't want to use the split stuff, go get a huge roll of heat shrink wrap. you might have to remove the connectors though, to get the wires inside. Honestly, it would be a lot of work with very little benefit.


Another quality post.

Speaking of the Air Force. You need to loom it according to Mil-T-FP41c. We used to specify that on drawings of parts for the Military.

This is a little off-topic but since I started it, it is ok. wink. Speaking of Air Force, my brother served for 23 years and now his granddaughter is serving also. She was posted to Florida right after basic and served a 7 months deployment to the middle east. Now she is going to the Washington DC area. The point of this is how do they expect a Staff Sgt. to pay $2400.00 a month for an apartment?

Unless she is on “Separate Rations” the Air Force provides housing. At least that’s how it was 1965-1969.

Thanks Phak, I used to have some stuff that was used to re-wrap harnesses. It was like electrical tape, but not cloth and not sticky.

Be carful where you buy your loom. They make a high temp loom for engine bays. I buy my loom from “Del City”. They.have several different kinds of loom also. They have a lot of electrical stuff we use on our trucks..

Martin, She owns a home in Florida, her last duty station, I think it will be leased out. Most of her duty stations will be for 6 years, her grandfather's were. I said I would reenlist for Germany and I was told I would be back in Viet Nam before my wife would catch up with me. So I got out.

This is what I was going to suggest. A plastic (non adhesive) wrap for harnesses.

I went on JEGS and purchased a heat resistant braided wire covering. You just put the wires in it and put a zip tie around it. I like it. I can take a picture if you would like.
