Smile It's great to have a soldering master as a friend!

That's good to hear. I hope you're right!

Here's a couple of Before and After shots. This first one shows a really bad previous re-soldering job which occurred before my possession of the car. Looking at this, I'm surprised the engine ever ran properly!

And here's the job my buddy, an electronics wizard, did. What a difference in how it looks... and hopefully, in how it works!

Our only slight concern is that the ceramic insulator on the right has a hairline crack, which can be seen in both images. However, the crack doesn't appear to have affected the ceramic's insulating properties. The plastic cover was well sealed when re-installed, so moisture shouldn't be an issue.

The shop the car is in will be closed until next Wednesday, so it'll be a few days before I can report the results of this procedure.
