I fort I’d have a go at translating genial Jim’s highly informative technological colloquium on contact physics into prolespeak winking smiley.

The male and female parts of Lucas connectors come covered in crud.
That crud buggers their chances of mating.successfully..
A bit like sand on yer dubrie.
Stop sniggering at the back there winking smiley

Pic shows a crud encrusted alternator dubrie.

Any questions so far?

Moving crud is easily done with that contact. Even an oil film may be displaced, but copper oxide on those unplated blades will require mechanical action. Wiggling may be enough, but most likely will be temporary.

Here's the crud down inside the female's dubrie

You can see the way the metal's been
rolled over to form a couple of skids.

And the crud on those skids sad smiley

Any questions please smiling smiley

Are you waiting for somebody to ask .. how should we clean cruddy terminals like these? .. if so, ill ask .. how should we clean cruddy terminals like these?. My answer .. I use a small dremel and a teeny weeny wire wheel if I have too, I prefer to replace cruddy contacts if possible and I always slap on some dielectric grease. The Prince of darkness is seldom seen here cool smiley

I was waiting for you to
ask you wanted Stuart smiling smiley

I'll answer your question shortly.
The answer is simpler than you think thumbs up

Have you googled "Dielectric"?
It's meaning may surprise you.

You may also wish to
google "Conductive grease"

It took quite a bit of pressure on
the female to get full penetration winking smiley

I don't know how much because I don't
have the tools needed to measure.it.

My pinkies weren't happy I can tell you..

Afterwards, her clung on very tightly sad smiley
I even thought about a bucket of water.

I hung an 8lb lathe chuck off 'im
but her gripped 'im like a vice. winking smiley

I added a 4lb faceplate to the
chuck; I thought she was going
to cling on, but no, out he slid sad smiley

He had a couple of battle scars
where she'd clenched on to 'im smiling smiley

You can see t'scars 'e picked
up when 'er clenched on to 'im.

'Er scrawped the crud off just
like that leaving a couple of 1/2"
long scar about 1/16th wide.

Then clenched on to 'im like
'er was never gonna let 'im goo.

What with the crud out the way,
an' the way 'er clenched on to 'im
when they got fown and dirty the
contact between 'im and 'er must
have been very hintimate,

As you can see, 'er didn't need
no 'elp to clean the crud offof 'im.

Whoops, piccy of me whippy by mistook.

The joining action also wiped
the crud off 'er clenchers.

As 'er clenchers bend back when
'e enters it were 'ard to get a pic.

So I scrawped 'im across 'er which
removed the crud where I scrawped.
