Default msd wire mishap

I bought a set of msd'* on here recently for a great price
well, one of terminals at the coil end is messed up so I got one bad coil end boot
is there any way to fix this? can I recrimp another little metal thing on? If so where would I get this and what would I need

Yes you can buy the clips at Napa for 0.40 cents, they usually have a tool there and can pinch it for you too.

you can use grease to help you. i usually use di-electric when i do the universal wires, but im sure vaseline would work just as well, and be much cheaper.
