Excellent. What'* that, our 15th cable corrosion in a month? It'* worse in higher humidity/rainy weather.



You are now a believer in the procedure and can help us preach to the next guy.

Happened extremely fast too, cause I cleaned them when I did the manifold work back in August... maybe the dielectic grease will help.

If you removed the boots and cleaned the cable ends and inside the boots really well, and used the dielectric grease, I'd say you're good for a couple years with a decent non-leaking battery.
