Hello what I did was remove the shrink tubing all together and reinstalled 
newer stuff, the type I was able to get my mitts on had a similar sealant like 
the original tubing had. The manufacturer name is Raychem, Part # TCS2-15/17 
Now this stuff was a bit larger than actually needed, so look for stuff about 
35% larger than the area you wish to cover, i.e. if the coil is 1.25" try for 
stuff that is 1 5/8" or similar in size in non shrunk dimensions...Most heat 
shrink tubing specs will give min and max diameter size before and after 

Good luck with your R5, and if you need any other info I maintain a web page 
mostly devoted to the R7 , but many of the traps used on the R7 are used on the 

73 and hope to meet you on air soon !!!
