I'll be interested in the feedback.
Interesting stuff! My solder joints when joining 2 wires always ends up wicking along the wire. It ends up with about 40mm of solid joint and by the time you add heatshrink then all flexibility is gone.
I used these solder sleeves at work many years ago and that was for military work. The fact that the solder ring is very short and the heatshrink supports the joint makes me happier.
I'll try them when they arrive and report back.

I have since just used a but joint. Forcing the wire stripped ends together, tidy it up, then solder it. This way worked much better with less wicking as it took less heat.

What a mess!

So far I have -
Re-formed the ECU to Engine loom. Only temporary and using Spiwrap it went quite quickly.
Buzzed out the oil switch
Buzzed out the starter signal
Tried to buzz out the alternator to ignition light (no success).
Plan is to get it cranking and then work out the fuel and then the sparks.
Thinking of replacing the battery to starter cable with 50mm2. Is this heavy enough?
I have a battery cutout switch between the seats but this will have to move as my seats are bigger and the exhaust is pretty close to the terminals.

I decided to put my engine to body earth here.
So it involved scraping the back of the web until I got shiny metal. As I couldnt see behind there, I used my borescope camera. Although the photo quaity is not perfect, this was as a great purchase and plugs directly into my phone.
