    Old time electricians used to call this "friction tape", in case you need to ask for it in a few different names...

    I didn't think friction tape was a shielding material? That is the cloth type stuff, right?

    Correct and it provides no shielding.

    Do you need some of the aluminum tape for the wires? I have several small lengths that I have removed from various harnesses. Send me a PM with your address.

    The ground wire in the TFI harness grounds with the case ground connector just below the EEC.

    Thanks for the offer.. I may hit you up on this. I was thing of taking some coax apart to harvest the sheilding. I have about a million feet of unused coax.

    So technically it is just a drain not a shield...

    That is what I used on mine when I redid them. I cut a piece longer than I needed from the coax and then shrink wrapped it in.

    I checked out Radio Shack for the wire shielding. The guy I asked looked at me like I was speaking french.

    You can cut the coax if you feel so compelled. You can also purchase what you need at Fry's if you have one near by. You can order it from McMaster Carr, Del City, Terminal Co, & other electrical supply catalogs.

    Foil connected at one end & open at the other is technically a drain not a shield.

    I bet the Radio Shack guy tried to sell you batteries or a cell phone.
