Wire insulator

Iím going to be pulling my motor soon, so Iím going to clean up the wiring in the engine bay. What wire insulator would you recommend to keep it packed and clean looking?

Thanks!

Re: Wire insulator

Split wire loom, Easy to work with. The split lets you put the wire through without having to remove the end terminals. Cheap, but won't take extremely high heat. Get various sizes. For areas around headers and to starter I would use some high heat type of loom. I like to wrap the end with cloth electrical tape with the end of the tape on the loom. Makes it look sort of stock. Then I use a small zip tie to keep the tag end from coming loose.

Re: Wire insulator

I use TechFlex F6 on the same page that Dutch Max Headwork's linked Amazon page. Really makes the wiring look nice.

I've even seen it installed around hoses. Nice stuff...
