Ahhh...my mistake...however, a much better solution would be just a piece of heat shrink with a sealant over the ends of the wire. Those connectors will not provide any corrosion resistance at all.
If you go the heat shrink route, you slide about 1''-1.5'' ove the wire and leave about 1/2'' over the end...then when you heat it up, you take a pair of pliers and squeeze the end of the shrink that is not on the wire...that will ensure that moisture doesn't propogate down the wire.

Now that I might be interested in and would love to see...probably similar to the Shiftster 2 coming out....but even this one does everything I need it to do. I will be in 4H a half dozen times this winter and will probably only put a couple hundred miles on my Bronco all winter. BTW, the Tcase is close enough where I can literally pull the plunger and shift it without even putting my knee on the ground.

Randy, is that thread, or part, in the other forum easy for you to send me? Just out of curiosity.

Ahhh...yeah, that does sound far better....in that little 8 minute (6 minutes too long - but not for someone like me) video, he mentions that if you want to put electrical tape to help, you can. But the heat shrink idea sounds better. I'm not sure I'll ever want or need to put the motor on there again.

So if you see the black notch and the 4H mark, the hole to the left, which is less than 1.5 inches is how much you'd need to turn it to get to 2H. The 4L hole is way on the other side, about a 300 degree twist from that first hole to the left, which I doubt I'll ever need. I don't go wheeling or mudding or work with my trucks...that's what my POS Dodge is for.

Electrical tape won't help either...what happens is that moisture will creep down the wire between the copper strands and insulation...eventually corroding the wire for a long way rendering it useless...battery cables are good for doing this.
Even though you might not ever anticipate using that motor again , one day you might sell it and it's always a bonus to be able to put it back to factory easily.
If you do heat shrink it, you need to get the stuff with sealant and a 3:1 shrink ratio works well.

Duncan, the thought of selling it, was really the ONLY thought that came to my mind that might cause me to reinstall this thing. Someone already offered me a few bucks for the motor, which is still running, but I think for the few bucks I'll get for it, I'll just throw it in a Bronco box and put it in my garage.
