When it came time to put terminals on my battery / welding cables, I went to the local welding supply house. For ten bucks they would crimp whatever I brought in. Or, for the same ten bucks, I could have my very own hammer driven, bench mounted cable end crimper. Works fine, lasts long time.

Following on from that, I need to extend my starter motor feed, - could anyone point me to a supplier of large but-splice connectors?

Why not just replace the wire? How long
is it? Have you considered welding cable
from local supplier . . . they might even
be able to hydraulically apply terminals
for a decent price.

Replacing the wire was a possibility, but it runs so deep and long into the wing/fuselage that it would be more surgery than just replacing the section in the engine bay which had the last  4” overheat due to a poor connection.
I’m thinking something like this;
