Section IV. MAINTENANCE OF ELECTRICAL SYSTEM.
Power Cable Repair. (See figure 5-5.) The power plant cables are repaired by resoldering or
replacing loose or damaged contacts inside the connector. A soldered contact can be unsoldered and
a new one installed in its place. If, however, the damaged contact is crimped onto the wire, or if the
wire is broken, the contact must be cut off. When one wire in the cable has been cut or broken, all
wires must be cut to the same length and new contacts soldered on each. Refer to TB SIG 222 (TO 31-
