Wire Repair Kit.
Mission and Major Components.
The kit is used to repair damaged aircraft electrical
wires and co-axial cables. The kit contains the
necessary tools and materials to strip and splice wire
and heat shrink the environmental seal insulation
provided for shielded and unshielded wires and co-axial
cables as well as the preassembled wire splice
segments. Bulk, wire, wire shield, and heat shrinkable
tubing stocks are also provided. The major tools and
repair materials are:
Model HT-900A Heat Gun. The Model HT-900A
Heat Gun is a compressed air and nitrogen heating
tool. It provides a portable source of heat for use
with heat shrinkable tubing, environmentally sealed
splices, and meltable solder fittings. The HT-900A
may be used on fueled aircraft. The heat gun is
self-contained, but requires compressed air or
nitrogen and electrical power. Adaptors are for use
with various air or nitrogen supply hoses and AC
Wire Stripper and Cutters. Wire strippers and
cutters are for use on unshielded and shielded
wires, and co-axial cable. Stripper blades are
provided for the most common aircraft wiring
insulation materials. Instructions for blade selection
and stripper operation are supplied.
Crimp Tools. The kit provides crimp tools and
instructions for both wire crimp splices and terminal
