JohnEd, it's me!  I confess!  I did it!  You can now sleep easy knowing that IT'S MEEE!  bwahahahaha...

Wait.  The very fact that I read your emails about this proves it's not me.  Curses - foiled again!  And - the guy who blocked you doesn't know you're looking for him!  You can sneak up on him!

John Ed, not me!

I guess in reading all of this...and I have made a quickie to Fort Myers, FL and back, haven't been able to read until now...I am amazed at the pettiness of someone complaining about who took credit for 'fixin' MattC's problem!

 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy I took a good chuckle over the pettiness too, Jack. After all, why would anybody pm, Don. If Pete had an issue, he could have solved it with Don. Those other didn't need to get involved at all....sheesh.

God bless,

ok, back from a few days R&R.

For those who wanted to source Termin8tr:

In Canada, Traction Heavy Duty Parts (NAPA's heavy division) carries the product, either on the shelf or they can order it from their catalogue.

In the US, at this time, you can only order by the case, a case has...darn, 12 cans maybe? anyway, contact Spectra directly, ask for Andy, he's expecting a few calls. Here's the link again:
http://www.spectra-ssa.com/inforequest.html

I'm still friends with everyone!

The spray I use, Termin8tr, is a penetrating spray and a corrosion inhibitor and is dielectric. There are others, Fluid Film is another I have used.

Sprayed into wiring and connectors, it creeps up the wires, prevents corrosion, frees stuck parts, etc etc.

The trouble with dielectric grease, its effectiveness is local to where it was applied, and it is completely dependent on the efforts of the person applying it to get it deep into the sockets, or not. Air pockets prevent it touching the deepest parts of some styles of connectors. Dielectric grease will not defend against the creeping green or black death running down the conductors. The spray creeps down the cables, inside the insulation.

The busnut challenge moving ever deeper into the world of electronic controls, is keeping corrosion from walking up the conductors inside the insulation from the ends.

happy coaching!

I have been quite impressed with CorrosionX (http://www.corrosionx.com/marine.html).  They do not mention it on the main page, but on this page:  http://www.corrosionx.com/ma_use.html, they mention the "extraordinary dielectric properties".  

I have used it on my battery connections, but not on electrical connections like the connections to the ECM.  Seems to me to be a bit "greasy" and I am not sure if that is good or bad.

Anyone have experience with this product on critical electrical connections?

It is getting much easier to find - supposed to be at True Value hardware stores.  Used to have to go to a marine outlet or an RV trade show.

Please note that I have started a new thread on this subject.  Any replies on the subject should be posted there.  Thanks
