your not the first one to be dishearten by the lack of forethought buy these "manufactures" , But it can be made right. Its part of the charm of these little engines. Wait until one of your motor mounts brakes fifteen miles from home.
there is a known procedure for shorting the cable and there is a U tube vid on how to get it done (thats the one I copied)
I can't stand silver solder, it doesn't melt, and flow nearly as well as lead.
I order lead solder from Mexico... It's kind of expensive, but totally worth it.
