    X Type what's this?

    Hoping somebody that is gifted in breaking possible bad news ..gently..answers this question. What is the wire running along the front of the motor (top) with the small 'copper'tabs mounting it along under the injectors. It then connects to another wire ( both screwed into the body at this point) that disappears down the front of the engine. Just worried 'cos where they join at the body has got very hot and even melted..ouch. just noticed it, not feeling any running problems...
    Cheers. Richard

    Great first post, but it's not really Forum News, is it?
