A poorly made connection

A poorly made connection
16CVs
This wire was crimped to too large a connector and the crimp was on the insulation. The wire strands were just barely touching.
Luckily is was not a load connection just a Halls connector. This wire was found buried in the tunnel.

Finally I found my sticker before having them made. While a little pricey at almost $8.00 each delivered, it's nice to have them done.

Syncro R/P
16CVs
Swapped a freshly rebuild Trans into my Tristar and am sending my takeout back to Rancho for a rebuild as well.
I pulled the drain plug and the bell housing to get all of the oil out before shipping and found a chunk of the Pinion gear in the oil. You just feel it when you spin the pinion. Probably pulled it at just the right time.
It had close to 60K on a rebuild.

Super Multi plug wiring warning
16CVs
Here are the wires going into the dash warning fixture. When plugged in propery the oil pressure light does not go off and the alt light stays dim.
When unplugged all functions properly. I do not have a full diagram of this plug. The online version does not break out his plug. I will now chase the wires by the numbers on the plug. Me thinks that a wire is out of place causing this issue.
Any help or direction is appreciated.

Old Non scripted VW Box

I have a Non scripted VW box with what looks like a wheel cylinder kit in it. The number on the box is 11 415 211. Usually it would have 3 3 numbers at the beginning.
I did a Google search and found nothing. Is this a real early part or am I missing something?
Any help appreciated.

400 K Tristar Only 100 K more so I can retire
16CVs
My Trusty and well loved 1989 Swedish Tristar Syncro hit the 400.000 mile mark while rolling down Highway 101 in Santa Clara.
I bought this truck with 197.000 13 years ago. The body is holding up well. After normal repairs it's going strong.
This is my idea of being GREEN, not producing and scrapping something just to buy something else.

Up Up Up with the Multivan
16CVs
Trying out my new to me NORCO lift. It's a bit un nerving with iy up that high but it seems to be stable enough.
The rack is rated at 6K Lbs, it seems to me that it is more for a Passenger car and not this huge geavy box.
I've been under it and worked on it and it seems OK, I just have to get used to it.

Nasty Syncro Ground strap
16CVs
This may be why may starting has been iffy lately, I thought it was a bad Ignition switch which I tried and that wasn't it. I jumped my starter relay and it still would not start. I've been lucky enough to be on just enough hill and bump start it until the other day when I had to get a push.
I was getting ready to possibly put a starter in which is bitch in Syncro. So on the off chance I ordered a new Ground strap from BUSLAB in Berkeley about 3 months ago and finally changed it.
One side of it was nicely crimped and soldered and the other side had a diffrerent connector on it and looks like it was squezzed in a vice. After putting the new in, I decided to cut it open and it was ugly as the wire under the crimp looked like the exposed wires. The braids were broken and corroded.
Hopefully this is the answer.
