Step 3: Prepare the Splice
Untwist the conductors. Then, prepare the splice by following the splicing instructions for copper wire presented earlier. Remember to stagger
splices to avoid shorts, Fig. 16.
Fig. 17 The Re-assembled Cable
Step 4: Re-assemble the Cable
After you have spliced and taped each wire, rewrap the conductors with the mylar tape. Be careful to avoid wrapping the drain wire in the tape.
Next, splice the drain wire following the splicing instructions for copper wire. Then, wrap the drain wire around the conductors and mylar tape,

Step 5: Tape the Cable
Tape over the entire cable using a winding motion, Fig. 18. This tape will replace the section of the jacket you removed to make the repair.
Fig. 22 Terminal Repair
The following repair procedures can be used to repair Push-to-Seat, Pull-to-Seat or Weather Pack(R) terminals, Fig. 22. Some terminals do not require
all steps shown. Skip those that don't apply. (Refer to Kent-Moore Terminal Repair Kit J 38125-A for further information.)
Cut off terminal between core and insulation crimp (minimize wire loss) and remove seal for Weather Pack(R) terminals.
Apply correct seal per gauge size of wire and slide back along wire to enable insulation removal (Weather Pack(R) terminals only).
Align seal with end of cable insulation (Weather Pack(R) terminals only).
Position strip (and seal for Weather Pack(R)) in terminal.
Hand crimp core wings.
Hand crimp insulation wings (non-Weather Pack(R)). Hand crimp insulation wings around seal and cable (Weather Pack(R)).
Solder all hand crimped terminals.
Typical Electrical Repair
An open circuit is an incomplete circuit. Power cannot reach the load or reach ground. If a circuit is open, active components do not energize. A short
circuit is an unwanted connection between one part of the circuit and either ground or another part of the circuit. A short circuit causes a fuse to blow or
