I rewired the foot pedal today. I did not feel like soldering so I just wound the wire round the connectors. I did use the sheathing on the new wire. Why not? I had meant to do that with the 15-91 but forgot.
The first thing I did was take the four screws out of the bottom of the foot pedal and pried the top off. I love my Brownell Bits. Maybe I have said that before. The 240 -4 fit the screws in the foot pedal feet just perfectly
Then I identified the white wire at the other end and followed it all the way back to the foot pedal. I marked the wire all the way down to the foot pedal every few inches with a white dot of paint from a paint pen. I wanted to make sure that I had the right wire. I could not tell which wire was the white wire because of the sheathing on the wires at the foot pedal end.
this is easier to do before stripping insulation. Learn by doing. Then I stripped the insulation from this side and attached it to the foot pedal. I used a small screw driver bit to tuck the wire under the screw connector. This makes the connection look neater.
Replace the rubber feet and screws and tighten the screws. It is always best to tighten each screw a little bit all the way around so that you get an even fit. Then go back and tighten each screw completely.
I do love the look of new wire.
