Yeah I know some might think what a waste of time or minute but I get a lot of satisfaction fabricating something I don't have to buy out of things I already have. The nearest hardware store is 24 miles round trip besides it was raining, feeling lazy & wanted to just relax & not get real dirty that day.
I went to start my GT the other day & no go...broken starter wire at the gromment. I used a piece of #6 braided copper house wire, a few peices of 1/4" ID soft copper tubing, & some heat shrink tubing.
I cut the copper tubing about 1 1/4" & pressed flat about half that in a vise. I also pressed a little angle corner near the wire shank to make it more ridged...got to be professional even in the small things.
I then soldered the wire inside the tubing pocket & covered with the heat shrink tubing. Don't put the HST on before you solder, slide it on after the heat cools off....I know this for a fact. Drill the holes accordingly & round off the edges.
I made several of these to make my time more beneficial. Thanks for looking!
