Absolutely correct about the Mercury looms - all copper! - We use tinned wire, heatshrink connectors etc, and do as much as possible to prevent the Mercury bits from corroding, a lot can be done with preventative maintenance as well - we always recomend rinsing off inside the engine cowling with a hose after use, and then spraying with a water displacement spray such as Wurth Ultra 2040 on all of the bits that either move or can corrode!
