The socket-style (non-HEI-type) distributor connectors are brass and begin as straight terminals. Once they are crimped to the wire, slide the boot on and bend the terminal 90 degrees. The HEI-type terminals are straight and require no bending. With either style, fold the wire’s exposed conductor back along the sleeve and place the terminal so it sandwiches the conductor to the insulation as shown. Now you’re ready to use the crimp tool.
