Actually here's the only proper way to tap your pump wire.

Both of those look pretty good but I soldered then insulated mine...the pump was out of warranty and I got tired of surges w/mechanical connector that came with my Comp.

Don't forget if using a stealth plate to use a potting compound on the nut holding the wirelead! This will insulate from corrosion dirt and help it from loosening up! Don't ask why I did it! Just do it!

Silicone works but not as well with the heat. I used aquabond , wich is what I use for work!

Just thought I would add my 50 cents worth!

Lost my whole Comp today. Don't know yet if the box is dead or I just lost the display lights. The truck still runs strong but the Comp is all dark. I'll have to pull the Ohmmeter out and check to see where the problem is.

Those posi-taps are a great way to tap into any wire. I use them all the time.

I had my drag comp for years and never had a problem with it. And the guy that has it now is still running it with no problems. Hope it is something simple for ya Bubba
