Hi everyone, I'm working on removing my engine so I can replace the cylinder base gaskets over the winter. I've got everything ready for removal except the 3 yellow wires that go to the alternator. As I understand it the wires should come apart at the connection in the posted picture. They won't budge, and I don't want to do any damage. Does this look the way it's supposed to or is this something a previous owner did, or am I just thick and don't understand what I'm doing here. Can I snip these and solder them after I reinstall the engine? I've read that I can connect any of the yellow wires to one another. Is this also the case? And wow, those look terrible up close in this photo.
