Plus 1, there is a specific length is can not be beyond. I guess much shorter and it would jump the square also. Sadly I don’t have this information to hand.
yep + 1 on cable too long ...........instead of cutting the cable you might be able to try various thickness spacers on the end of the inner effectively shorting the squared bit sticking out ...i cant tell u what the square length should be but i know its critical
the tricky thing about just lopping the end off the square bit is that it tends to kind of unwrap and you get a frayed end but Im sure there is a way around that ........solder maybe?
Thanks Allen and Ignoramus,
I'd hoped to go at it again today but the other vehicles took all the time. My calipers have a depth gauge so I can check out how long is too long for the square section. Ignoramus, good tip on the unravel risk. I have this awesome low-temp solder powder in liquid flux that should be magic for this issue. Just dip and torch. Puts solder into the most the most resistant of places and metals. I will post an update this week.
