    Hey

    Thanks guys. Good tips. I also need to buy some old-loking wire.
    I'll get back to you on the support thing if I don't get it Petejoe. [​IMG]

    Just hop in your time machine and pick up the Rajah pliers at Moon Equipment--they strip the wire to the right depth and crimp the non-screw on terminals too. No problem.

    Anyone got a picture of these plug ends. I've read about them but never seen them.

    What, besides their vintage, makes them so special?

    They have a positive snap on lock that is much better than the brass wrap around fitting that came with the universal wire sets.

    They have a special place in my heart. When I was 18 with my first car I wanted to soup it up. Sound familliar? The cheapest and therefore the first hop up trick was to install Packard 440 stranded copper wires with Rajah clips. My first hot rod improvement. I'm sure the new technology big wires are more efficient but they aren't as romantic. [​IMG]

    Check them out here.

    The ss-sos and the as-sos are the ones I remember the most.

    In Tommy's link, AS-SOS and SS-SOS were the ones that useta be mandatory equipment for detailed engines, always with Packard 440 solid core wire. Other variants of the design have nickle plated sleeves or crimp-on installation with the same plug end clip, but I've never seen anyone using them.
    The sleeved models are permanent possessions which can be removed and screwed onto new wire when needed.
    The special Rajah pliers neatly snip&strip your wire to fit and also crimp the other kinds of Rajahs.

    The crimpers seem like a good idea, but the style I had did not have the provisions for a collar to crimp.
    The collar material was made too thick and would probably crack.I think Bruce may be referring to a type that has a softer collar.
    These are the types I used.


    The wire installs this way.
    Strip the plug wire end leaving about 1/2" of the core sticking out. Slide the wire into the collar inserting the core into the hole in the collar. Simply screw on the plug connector end. This end has a pointed area that traps the wire core in place and holds the wire onto the terminal.

    I bought mine from Brillman too. I bought the clear red wire from Speedway or Hot Rod and Custom Supply, can't remember now...

    Do the currently available ones have the Rajah lettering on them? They look like they don't from the rather poor pics I get on my computer.
    The crimping tool is for the crimp-on style Rajah that doesn't have the bakelite or nickle screw-on sleeve.
