    Broke the cable that connects to Ez Start

    hi guys, while running my Slayer pro today I broke the little steel clip that slots onto the negative terminal on my ez start. Does anyone know what these things are called to I can buy one and re-connect to my perfectly fine black connector? I would prefer not to replace the entire thing which is $10.

    Any ideas??? See image for exact piece...

    It's just a simple small female blade connector. It may be hard to find a right angle one but Jaycar or Dick Smith can supply a packet of straight ones for about $5.

    Take the easy start assembly to either of those shops and I'm sure they will be able to help.

    You could just soider it on, costs nothing.

    Come to Lake Centenary in Temora to run your RC boat. Free BBQ's, power points, great amenities with hot showers, a childs sandpit/play area and lots of shade sails around the lake edge. It's 2km out of town, fresh water and gas boats are welcome.

    Yeh solder it onto the starter motor and put another type of Connector on further up the wire if you have any other male/female pairs laying around.

    one of the first things I suggest to people with that system, solder both red and black wires direct to the motor, and then add a set of bullets up the line about half way between the motor and the wiring block

    If you need to remove the motor, just unplug the wires

    the little tags often bend putting them on, by soldering they no longer pose a problem, and also make a better connection when soldered
