Brief Description:  Terminals for large gauge wire

Experimented with the new hydraulic terminal crimper I bought to crimp terminals on large gage wire. The goal was to create a quality crimp for #2 wire cables so I can install the terminals on the battery cables.

After a few different tries I found the best method was to start with a #0 crimp die to start forming the terminal to shape, then switch to a #2. The crimp with the #2 was done in two steps. First the die was closed roughly half way. Then the terminal was rotated 90 degrees and the die was closed fully. This was done so that the terminal didn't get pinched in the die parting surface.

Wet sanded and re-primed the throttle quadrant support parts.
