Just a quick question here. I like the idea of having a battery cut off just as extra protection and a little extra theft deterrent. My question is, I have a 100amp resettable circuit breaker that I thought about using for this. Anyone have any info why or why not this may work for my project? Here's an example of a similar breaker to what I have.

Am I the only one who misses the expertise and knowledgeable input that was always provided by Jeephammer?

hear is a link to connectors that are inside relay pigtails. I used these when I want to change the wire gauge. These fit most all the pigtail that are used for relays. The pic online is different from what they send.

...for those of us that're anal about our battery connections....

....and another one for those of us that're into doing the Contour/Mystique engine cooling fan swap. I have a box full of 70 amp wide blade female receptacles;





I think I trust Czech manufacture more than Chinese


Here's the disparity between 40 and 70 amp relay females;



These are used for this 70 amp relay (note the blade size);



If you have a need for one, drop me a line.

With regard to that large 70 amp relay, I've taken a relay panel from a Ford F150 and am in the process of modifying it to accept the oversized receptacle also made by Hella. My progress so far;

I'm on my way, I found some of that heavy wall 'gooey' heat shrink tubing at Platt Electric. The 48" of 12-6 AWG was $23.76 and the 9" of 1/0 to 8 AWG was $4.61 (I hope I didn't get burned)





I found and bought on EBay some knock off ratcheting pliers with the jaws I was looking for for $33.16. Since I'm not going into production of masses of wiring harnesses, these ought to get me through this job. Platt had a set in their catalog for $99.00 owing to a mainstream toolmaker (Klein?)



...just a little more organizing in the garage next saturday and I'm hoping to get started.

Subscribed.

I found HD headlight sockets for CJ headlights on the shelf at Advanced Auto yesterday.

I also found adhesive line heat shrink tubing on the shelf at West Marine. Actually, they had a great array of fuse blocks, bus bars, and other misc electrical stuff. I'd suggest seeing if a store is close to you. www.westmarine.com

Quick relay question.....

I've been concerned with running that 70 amp relay so when the Ford Contour fans come on together they don't cook the relays, however I'm wiring these fans independantly with their own controllers, fuses, relays and wiring...

Therefore this eliminates the overamp issue doesn't it?

As many may have seen from my posts I've already prepared relays, sockets and wiring for that 70 amp relay but now I'm thinking it's all for naught.

Confirmed OK by another, but then since it's already been prepared nothing wrong in over engineering I think.
