Could anyone explain the oil leaking down the wires a little better other than describing it as positive pressure from the stator or something or other? That's kind of confusing to me. All I know is that my white connector should be white and not a brown, oily color and there shouldn't be oil on the spades. I find it pretty alarming that oil is getting into the wiring loom. It should be in the engine, not my electrics! Is it a result of adding too much oil?
Also what would happen in the case of the connectors being taken totally out of the equation? Wouldn't oil more easily make its way to the regulator if the connectors were cut out and the wires soldered together? Would that damage the regulator in some way if the oil actually got into the regulator?
