    I'm glad you posted this. I am restoring my generator end as well and will need to do considerable lead replacement. I want to replace all the leads going to the selector switch (going thru the lead block) and a few others. Currently I am determining what size cable, length, lug requirements, and heat shrink requirements I will need. Some of the internal connections are the old school connect stranded to flat copper wrapped with copper wire and soldered. Those may pose a challenge. I am thinking about buying one of those hydraulic crimpers that crimp lugs in a hexagonal fashion for the eye lugs. I want all my connections to be mechanically sound as well electrically sound. Well insulated goes without saying. I want suggestions for high quality cable, lugs, and heat shrink tubing..........You probably do as well so let's see what kind of responses you get.

    Thanks again for starting this thread.
