Sorry , but the way I read your post here...and I did read it again ... It does say stator wires-R/R wires:

"1) How long should I go without solder on my new connections for the stator legs rewiring and the replacement of my R/R. I wrapped all new connections with a good dose of 3M electric tape.
2) Because I rewired the stator to R/R wires, I removed the existing wiring harness insulation from where the stator wires join the harness near the stator to just past the battery box. Enough room for me to remove the old stator and include the new stator wires and wires from the R/R. My question is, can regular electric tape be used to replace the insulation I removed from the wiring harness? "


Had I though you were asking about wires in general I would not have posted the above..

Sorry. I agree, I should have made this a statement about wires in general, instead of mentioning the stator and R/R.

No appologise needed, not a big deal, just saw it as an opportunity to give you an example.....not make you one.

On a more topic related side, you can buy a usable soldering gun at Walmart or Radio Shack for a couple of bucks. Mine is buried in a storage locker somewhere, but if I needed one....I'd pick up a cheepy to do the job.....and even possibly return it after I was done.

Noticed Radio Shack had a soldering pen for about $10.

And I still need you to make me a seat like yours.
