That was the only bpd part it had. Everything else was fallig apart. But I put it on my sisters 6.0 so it's still in the family. Also told her husband he's not allowed to get rid of it lol.


It's a bit longer then the herbie

I have used dielectric grease before and it is slightly thicker than the motorcraft electrical grease. The thinner grease allows you to cut a smaller hole for the nozzle and apply grease more precisely.

It also makes the tube easier to squeeze

So to confirm if you clip the wire for 53v first then you can't ever run the 58v because once you cut both it defaults back to 48v? Then if you cut the 58v first you won't be able to ever use the 53v option? Just trying to figure out cuz mine is scheduled to show up tomorrow. thanks.

Yup, once you cut them, you're committed....unless you're really good at working with electrical in those tight little quarters and even then, I don't know what kind of affect on resistance you'd have by soldering them back, if you'd even have any.

IMO it would be easy to solder those wires back together, plenty of room. And I see no chance of any issues if its a good solder job.

Yup I have contemplated changing voltages

that jumper is insulated i believe so you would clean the ends at the cut and use some high temp solder ,,
