I know...faulty logic.

I am treating the corrosion like its mold or contageous bacteria.

But I have decided to just get new Ford OEM from White Bear Lake when I do buy the new cables.
I dreamed about some of those custom built cables with all the upgraded military terminals and such...but with two trucks needing them and the EPA very likely making my old 7.3s illegal to operate on public roadways in the next 10 years, I guess the original Ford cables lasted 14 before issues.

Lol
