Rebuilding a Meyer E-47 Pump - Step by Step
Page - 10
The Wiring Problems We Found
No way would that white trigger wire come off. The base of the solenoid is almost completely rotted away too. Time for a new one.
The corrosion was pretty bad where the lug was crimped on the cable.
Where the cables all connected to the battery was a total mess.
Time to make new cables. We opted for welding cable, 2 gauge. The original wire was 6 gauge feeding the plow.
The red heat shrink on the lugs is triple wall, with adhesive in it, so it the black on the white trigger wire. We also used 2 new tooth washer under the mounting base to ensure a good ground. These solenoids must have a good ground at the base to work properly.
We used an accessory "stand off" on the battery to allow everything to be connected properly. We also changed the ring terminal on the accessory feed wire.
We finished it off with a good coat of Fluid Film on all connections.
