Re: Oxygen Sensor wire repairs
Posted to Technical Theory Forum on 7/2/2017


I have read your posts about the different types of wire's.

Over 40 years ago I had a friend that worked at Raytheon it was working with missiles. He was able to get some odd ends of wire rolls say under 6'. This wire was almost indestructible. Insulation would not chafe and if wire shorted would get hot but insulation would not melt.

I have never seen anything like that wire in retail. The close I could find would be something Like O2 wire's.

This wire had to stand up to extreme heat and resist any shorting issues the would burn other wire insulation. IMO.

I used this wire to make Motorcycle Chopper harnesses. They would last like no other wire I have seen.

Granted this wire was military special space wire and was wondering if you had seen anything like it.

I know this is off subject but just came to me from back then.
