Default And I Wonder Why...

I try to correct some of the work done by others as I come across it. The attached pic of wiring is what I found and cut out when replacing my leaking shurflo pump heads today. And I wonder why I have so many electrical problems.

Workmanship is TERRIBLE! He could've gotten a lot more butt connectors in that wire if he had tried!

That's one way to use up all the little pieces of wire laying around. Never ceases to amaze me on some people's cobbling abilities. I have stumbled across some of that on my bird.
