Can fusible links be soldered?
I'm wiring up my '77 CJ7's alternator according to the many posts on that subject and am wondering about connecting the fusible links via soldering. I soldered all the other wiring connections on the "EZ Wiring Harness" I installed on it.
I've been searching the forum and haven't found anything yet. I saw a post stating that the diode should be attached with a crimped connection, but have not seen anything about soldering vs crimped on the fusible link.
Since they appear to fail by burning out, would soldering make a fusible ink fail faster by (or while) soldering it??
Can a heat sink be used to solder the diode? I mean they solder on printed circuit boards and the like....
