Yeah, it does. In fact, after looking a little closer, I'd come to the same conclusion. Also washed out most of the corroded copper from the wire side of the cap with 90% Isopropyl. Will blow it out now and; thinking about putting a squirt of dielectric grease in there (both to ease re-insertion and, as a water barrier).
Edit to add - I lopped off a little less than 1/4" by eye. The blade caught up on good copper before it cut through. So, good wire to the cap... cap cleaned of all the loose corrosion. Thanks for the Saturday night help, lesblank! Now to get those carbs back in and finish this job up!
