Now you will extend the wires in the whip using the extension wires and heat shrink tubing in the Extruder Extensions bag. Make sure to keep the labels on each pair of wires so you can tell them apart later.

Draw the sheath up over the wires to expose about 150mm (6") of the ends. Secure the sheath with masking tape or a large binder clamp like the cool red one in the photo.

Parts cooling fan wires extension: strip 8mm (5/16") of insulation from the wire ends. Locate one pair of the 26/2 Cable Pre-Terminated wires and clip off the male connector as shown in the first photo. Solder and protect with 1/16" Heat Shrink tubing.

Hot end cooling fan wires extension: strip 8mm (5/16") of insulation from the wire ends. Locate one pair of the 26/2 Cable Pre-Terminated wires and clip off the male connector as shown in the first photo. Solder and protect with 1/16" Heat Shrink tubing.

Thermistor wires extension: strip 8mm (5/16") of insulation from the wire ends. Locate one pair of the 26/2 Cable Pre-Terminated wires and clip off the male connector as shown in the first photo. Solder and protect with 1/16" Heat Shrink tubing.

Cartridge heater wires extension: strip 8mm (5/16") of insulation from the wire ends (the larger pair of blue wires). Extend with the pair of red 18 AWG Silicone Wires using the two pieces of 3/32" Heat Shrink to insulate them.

Stepper motor wires extension: strip 8mm (5/16") of insulation from the four wire ends. Locate two pairs of the 26/2 Cable Pre-Terminated wires and clip off the male connectors. Label one pair A and the other pair B near the connectors with marking tape.

Connect, solder and insulate the wires as shown in the drawing: black stepper wire to the black wire in the A pair. Brown stepper wire to the red wire in the A pair. Yellow stepper wire to the black wire in the B pair. Orange stepper wire to the red wire in the B pair.
