This is the wire running to my starter. I noticed today that the blue wire was exposed where it enters the black thingy. I'm not sure what the purpose is of the black thingy or why the wires change colors but what is the proper way I should fix this. Just for my fyi what is that black thingy there for and why do the wires change colors?
Thanks,
Charlie

The blue wire is fusible link. It protects the main power circuit. Just slide that black sleeve down a bit over the exposed wire. It is simply an insulator.

Hi,
Just to be sure, you might want to give a good pull on both wires. In installing my AAW kit, I found those wires weren't fused well, and separated at that joint. AAW stood behind their kit, and sent me a replacement wire.
Regards, Doug
