What would be the proper way to terminate a wire end?
I'm running a mc2100 and nuttered 258, and upon cleaning up some of the uneeded stuff in the engine, and getting rid of some other junk the PO had in there, I'm left with some wires in the wiring harness that come out of the loom above the valve cover area. Taking the loom and harness the whole way apart to take the wire out the whole way seems a bit much at this point, but I'd like to cap them off some reliable and safe way that isn't going to start a fire down the road. Should I solder some caps on there and do some heat shrink around them or something like that? Wiring is not really my strong suit so any advice is appreciated...
can be done several ways. easiest is to use heat shrink and pinch the end with your fingers. only burns for a second! lol Other way is to get some of the terminals the phone company uses with the grease in them.
Dont use elect tape it traps water and do cover the end. if the wire starts to corrode it will spread to other wires. Seen that on salt water boats. eeeewww!

Just a thought and I am not sure if you can find it anymore but, what if you used some Plasti Dip and just dipped the end of the wire in the Plasti Dip.
I guess it is still around. Not sure if you can find it locally. Performix / Plasti Dip from ToolSavings, LLC
