H22 Alternator Wire Tape

The wire that goes over the H22 valve cover and runs over the alternator, what kind of tape is it wrapped with?? Where can I buy some?? I don't want to use electrical tape, it looks thinner than that. Would also like to stay as oem as possible even on something as subtle as tape. Here is a picture for reference.

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

looks like G difuser tape eets only carried on starfox's ship, great fox. No but in all reality, it just looks like gray electrical tape wrapped a **** ton an its in one of those plastic riveted looking wire holders you can buy from autozone

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

It really is just electrical tape. Different brands are thicker than others, that's all.


That's Justin's bay, I started a wire tuck on it and he never got a longer fusebox wire prior to the Honda Tuning shoot.

I can't help but bust his balls on it every time...

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

There's the 6 rolls for $1 type. And the $6.99/ roll type. Scotch or 3m I forget... get that kind.

You can heat it to make it look tighter and solidify the bond... especially at the ending point.

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

It's gray. That's a big dif. I'm personally not used to see-ing gray electrical tape all over the place.
First time I saw it in Unit 6095 I was like 'stretchy duct tape?wth?

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

It's not gonna have it.besides the proper taping is...

Tape up ther wiring 3-6 inches beyond the wire and loom contacts
Tape 3-6 inches below the start of the wire loom then SMOTHER the wire loom in tape.
The heat in the engine bY will fuse the two togather and your precious Harness will be safe and sound.

I already told you which is the best, but since you must have grey, 3 or four rolls of this...


Keep searching here
Gray electrical tape

Re: H22 Alternator Wire Tape

Use black, it looks better and blends in rather then pop out like the gray. My tape was starting to peel so I ripped all of that foam stuff off and bought some wire loom from autozone and wrapped it up.
