Need your advice...replaced the fuel pump with a Carter fuel pump ordered online. The connector was different...had to splice the wires with the new connector and butt crimp connectors that came with the new pump. I did not solder the connections...just used the crimp connectors and made sure they are secure. I also did not use any electrical tape, heat shrink or zip ties...the pump and housing assembly are immersed in gas in the fuel tank.

I have read several threads about wire connectors for gas tank fuel pumps...most say this is completely safe and no need to worry.

Should I be concerned about the crimp connectors and potentially going bad, sparking, exploding etc?

What is the proper way to connect the new pump wires to the housing assembly?
