I did some mods to my wiring harness that required removing some of the outer wrapping. Now I'm ready to wrap it back up, but I am not sure what kind of tape to use. I've been told not to use plastic electricians tape, as it reacts to heat and oils. I'm not looking for the split type loom stuff. Okay, then what is a good tape to use?

Dry Vinyl Tape From Tape Brothers
Duct Tape, glow tape, electrical tape, and tape products At Tapebrothers.com

Dry Vinyl Tapes are non-adhesive plasticized polyvinyl chloride film tape. Easy unwinding characteristics - tape clings firmly to it’s own backing for tight wrap. High elongation and good strength to permit trouble-free binding of wiring harnesses for the automotive industry. Dry vinyl tape also used for plating applications- high stretch, good “cling” characteristics and great conformability provide for superior masking in hard chrome and other plating applications.

Expensive stuff. I didn't have that much to do, so I went ahead and used electricians tape. But thanks for the reply.

The point in using the tape that was recommended is that it is non-adhesive. Normal electrical tape will tend to unstick itself due to petrol vapours or heat, leaving a sticky mess. Dry or self amalgamating tape gives a much cleaner finish over time.
