    dang chipmunks

    Alvin ate through the black wire with the red stripe on the main harness of my 'o5 TDub. What does that wire power? Best fix? Thanks

    Looks like that wire runs between the AC Magneto and the CDI. Probably just splice it back together and seal it well.

    ValorSolo put together AWESOME color wire diagrams for all the years that can be found here: https://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...g-diagram.html

    Chipmunks suck! I had them burrow under my driveway and create sink holes! The neighborhood cats are lazy so I made a swimming pool for them... All gone now.

    They had burrowed through the garage wall into the basement so I spent last weekend fixing the monk holes with 90 degree angled aluminum flashing along the floor and cut flat flashing for the bigger areas. I still have 1 in the house but the rest moved back outside where they belong.

    Take a 5 gallon bucket, fill it half way with water, add a sprinkle of sunflower seeds, make a ramp for them to walk up, and wait. They will come. This is the only way I have been able to get rid of them. I've tried traps, etc...

    I heard you'll will catch even more of them if you put TW wiring in there instead of sunflower seeds.
