Can't get a heat shrink over it. Clean the wire with alcohol, and spray it with a few light coats of Duplicolor Plasticote.

How many wires did ya get???? If its only one, I would suggest getting some thin splicing tape or and just wrapping the harness with electrical tape (stretching it while wrapping). Not argueing with anyone, but electrical current flows/travels on the outside surfaces of the conductor- not through the conductor. Plasticote "can" seep down in between the strands and cause a resisatnce issue with the circuit. Regardless of what you do, it will never be back to factory, so you will have to live with that fact! At least if you ever have an issue with that particular injector, you will know the first place to check!

use a wire pin tool to remove from inj. plug socket
then heat shrink will go over no problem then put pin back in socket
