Poor crimps are fixed by cutting off the old connectors and recrimping on new connectors. If that makes the wire too short you replace the wire.

Glad you are making progress. It's not glamorous work but it is required to have a reliable car. All this hard work is why you check cabling at every oil change. You catch the first signs of corrosion before you have to replace cables.

Don't stop just because it's starting to run, bring all the wires/connections up to snuff.

Good luck!
