Wire Nut

Did GM use wire nuts on any 67 wiring under the dash? Or was this done by previous owner. It looks like it has been there for some time. Was replacing tach / speedo and noticed it. I am thinking about soldering the connection.

Thanks

Re: Wire Nut

Wire nuts like those used in house wiring? No, not from the factory.

Solder and heat shrink wrap if you have to make any repairs.

Definitely. Wire nuts are not designed to stay tight when things are moving around (houses don't do that).

No wire nuts on first gen Camaro's.
Come to think of it, I have never seen on any car.
