Solid core wire replaced with stranded wire?

Post by Sccy9er on Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:29 pm

About to start on a GE A-52 , I noticed much of the rubber coated solid core wire on the underside of chassis has lots of cracks and exposed wire, my question is if its ok to replace it with stranded wire ,I'm guessing it may work since stranded has more surface area but would like to get advice from more experienced folks.

Electrically, there is no difference. However, for neatness, and, in some circuits, it's critical to put the wire exactly where the original wire was. For those, I prefer to use non stranded wire.

I can see some possible problems. Stray strands could cause shorts and some pieces might not go through terminals. Also, like Bill said, some wires depend on strength to maintain position.

Solid core for me is just easier to work with.

Hi as bill and the others said --solid would be best -a lot of circuits
depend on the wire being close to the original location -being off can cause tuned circuits to pick up stray hum or other odd signals like motor boating or squeals- and change only one wire at a time keeping the length as close as you can to original
