daRicksta They all hook up the same way. the back of the outlet tells what color wire goes were.

Yep. The only difference is the inner workings of the outlets. The install is the same (so long as it is currently a grounded outlet which most are)

Did you upgrade the wire gauge before soldering? Those connector wires are pretty thin. "Stranded" too I think. If and when the next failure happens, I'll splice on a heavier gauge wire and then solder directly to the lugs (if they haven't corroded).
