Just about every project vehicle ends up needing some sort of wiring work through the process. Whether you are rewiring the entire rig, adding accessories or troubleshooting an issue, without the right tools, electrical work can be a pain. Holley Performance Products has created an extensive tool line up to solve your needs.
On the Holley Wiring Shop page, there is a wealth of tool options at your disposal. Holley has always produced high-quality products and has had specific hand tools since the beginning. To get a better idea of what is available, we decided to dig in and share with you a glimpse of what they have to offer.
To shed more light on the subject, we got in touch with Skylar Drake, Holley’s Creative and Technical Writer. “While Holley has always offered specialized hand tools such as jet drivers for carburetors,” he explained, “we are continuing to develop new products to meet the demands of customers over time.”
Vehicles and consumer needs have changed dramatically over the years. Newer vehicles are loaded with far more electronics, which means they need for new tools and component parts is always expanding. “With the fuel injection storm taking over the market,” Skylar expanded, “Holley had to create tools for those that wished to make their own harnesses, which includes crimping connectors, ECU pins, shortening wires, and more. MSD’s line of ignition testers, pin extraction tools and the interchangeable jaw crimping tool all provide the average hobbyist the ability to tackle any high-performance ignition system.”
Holley doesn’t just stop at making the tools, they have also been building a huge video database on the Holley Performance YouTube Channel showing you how and when to use them. Their channel has hundreds of videos including How-Tos, product spotlights, and more.
One video that is also front and center on the Wiring Shop home page is “How To Know When To Crimp Or Solder”. The nearly 12-minute video goes in-depth on the history and usage of crimping tools and techniques. Don’t let the length of the video scare you away. Veteran and newbies alike can benefit from the information.
“It is important to get the proper crimp or risk spotty connections, electrical noise issues and/or premature sensor failure.” Skylar went into further detail. “For this reason, we provide quality ratcheting pliers and de-pinning tools for most popular connector types. Whether it is a Deutsch, Weatherpack, Metripack or open barrel connector Holley/MSD offers the right tool for the job. Our Wiring Shop is filled with hard to find connectors, pins/seals, loose wiring, shielded cable, split loom and more.”
Regardless of what type of project you are working on right now, Holley Performance has the tools to help you make sure your wiring is done right.
