    So I have my entire original 70 harness out. It's been out for several years sitting in boxes. Ready to reinstall so it seems like a good time to clean all the connections so I have good contacts. Well I got all the plug pigtails clean but what is a good safe way to clean the male array like the back of the fuse block? And the engine side female array that attaches to it? None of those come apart

    The only way I clean electrical connectors is with spray contact cleaner. Mechanical means of doing it can too easily scratch the surface and cause problems later.
