Injection Boots

The wiring to the injection modules on my 2300GT needs resheathing. The heat at the top of the engine makes the cable protection break down - particularly the injection ‘boots’. OEM supplies are difficult to find. Any suggestions?

Thanks; but asking me not to go for it is futile!

I am probably going to have to take the wires off the injector connectors to fit the end shrink wrap and new boots - all advice gratefully received! The new main sheathing is split and easy to fit. The problem seems to be in the detailing. One duff re-connection...

Any special tools needed?

You can buy a de-pinning tool from the internet. This will allow you to pull the pins from the plugs and thread the boots over.

De-plugging too? More advice needed.. My days of just rushing in are long gone - my electrical genius of a dad too! This time, I am on my own - staring down eight barrels of a difficult problem. Time to clean out the rats nest and blast everything back to how she was when Masarati first made her.

I’m pretty sure they are EV1

You would need to ID the plug to get the exact details.

PS. Just noticed some ****wit had texture painted the aluminium side inspection box covers on the engine. Yup! That's coming off too for a back to basics refurb Probably just Artex over a crack - all designed to match the textured plasterboard on the garage ceiling so you wont notice the difference!

I got these nice right angled ones some years ago from Vehicle wiring products and I think they sold me the sold for dismantling the connectors too, its quite a fiddly process and the inserts take a bit of persuasion to remove but you get the hand of it just as you finish the job :)

Like everything else on the car it seems...
Do you have a link for the boots?

The Devil really is into the detail...
