So I replaced the OEM fuel pump on the 78 and I noticed when I unscrewed the brass nuts that connect the ring terminals of the wiring to the pump that some sort of rubberized type of material was partially covering the nuts. Of course in the process of the removing the nuts almost all of that rubber material crumbled off. So I was just wondering if there is supposed to be anything covering that connection? I mean, it is completely exposed on the underside of the car so it seems like there should be something providing some protection from the elements. I don't know why Nissan didn't just use an electrical plug connection, but I digress.

 

thanks

Put some silicone RTV over the connections.That will protect them from water and corrosion.

 

 The rubberized material was likely the remains of original rubber caps that isolated the terminals.
