  • Strong zipties in the colors of your choice (7 crappy medium ties were broken during this, so be sure to get good ones).
  • 2 different sizes - one pkg of small ties and one pkg of medium.
  • A pair of wire-snips or other cutting implement.
  • About 15 minutes.

You should do this while the wires are already installed on the engine, unless you have already marked the locations you want your looms.

  1. Wrap a larger zip tie around all four wires, but do not tighten it down.

  2. Take one of your smaller ties, slide it between the middle two wires, and create a loop around the black wire, but again, do not fully tighten.
