the wire must not exceed 1-1/2 inches (38 mm).
End of connection forming pigtail shall be fusion
welded as much as possible with addition of alloy.
When coil pole leads and ends consists of
multiple wires, care must be taken to ensure that
each wire is securely connected. All sharp wire
ends or spikes of solder remaining on brazed
joints should be trimmed off or flattened down to
prevent puncturing of insulation tape.
When connectors are used instead of brazing
connections, wire must extend completely through
the connector. The connector should be located
as close to the insulated portion of the wire as is
possible. Connectors must be applied using a
wire crimping tool; crimping is not to be done
using pliers, hammers, or other makeshift
Sleeving must be positioned to cover the coil to
which it is attached to a point at least 1/2 inch (13
mm) under two layers of tape. The sleeving at
the coil end must be positioned to provide a
minimum of 3/8 inch (9.5 mm) creepage path
from the coil extension to adjacent coils.
All connections in stator winding shall be taped
with tape per MIL-I-19166. Where tape is wide
enough to cover the uninsulated wire and extend
a minimum of 1/2 inch (13 mm) over insulated
portion of wire, wrap one layer of tape over the
connection, pressing the two adhesive sides
together for approximately 1/4 inch (6 mm). The
remaining length of tape should be long enough
to make two or more wraps over the connection.
The connection and any uninsulated part of the
wires adjacent to the connection will be covered
with three thickness of tape.
Where the tape is not wide enough to provide
coverage for the connection, the tape shall be
wrapped around the connection such as to
provide 1/2 inch (13 mm) lap plus 1/8 inch (3 mm)
(minimum). The overlap is to be such as to
provide a minimum of two layers of tape. The
double layer of tape is to extend a minimum of
1/2 inch (13 mm) over the insulated portion of
Stator windings will be tied on lead end only. Use
a hitch or chain stitch tie. Spacing between ties is
not to exceed 3 inches (76 mm). A tie must be
made over each connection. Tie on either side of
cable bundle will be a double lace. Tie must pass
through space between coils bridged by tape
specified under tie cord bracing ((d) above).
End turns on opposite lead side will not be tied.
However, the string ties, placed on the individual
coils during coil winding operation, will be
