Re: PO has me PO'd

That rubber inside the grommet will stretch. It's a bear, but it will. I have two of those on the truck, one for the FAST wiring and another for misc stuff. The second one has over an inch of wiring thru it, wrapped in braided sleeve. Getting the 4L80 harness and plug thru it was a nightmare...until I got creative.

Here's what I did.... I took a transmission funnel (lubed with lithium grease) and gradually ran it thru the grommet to open it up. Think speculum. Then cut the end of the funnel off and passed everything thru. Pulled the funnel back out and cut it off the harness.

Thanks for the tip!!! Bear, is a understatement, there were times, it woundn't budge. I was thinking lube, but wasn't sure.

Waiting for my 1 1/2" sheathing to come in from( F-6) Wire Care, then I can put it all back together, and start to make my connections

Thanks for the help
