Step Lines

[title] Installing the Heater Cartridge, Continued.
-[* black] Using a razor knife, cut the two PTFE insulator tubes in half as shown.
-[* black] Slide two of the shortened PTFE insulators on to the cartridge leads.
-[* black] Bend one lead about 80 degrees away from the other as shown.
+[* black] If you have a pair of crimps like the one in the picture, this will help. The first position near the tip of the crimps pictured are used in this step.
+[* black] Place the first crimp on one leg of the cartridge. The leg of the cartridge will go to the mid point of the crimp shown.
+[* black] Use the crimp tool to crush the HALF of the crimp that the leg of the cartridge is in. DO NOT crimp the entire length of the crimp as the wire will go in the other half.
+[* black] Repeat the process on the other leg of the cartridge so both crimps are attached to the heater cartridge.
