QUESTION:

What happens if you have too much epoxy inside the ferrule holder?

 

ANSWER:

Too much epoxy inside the ferrule holder can lead to other issues—for example, the inserted fibers will displace the injected epoxy so that it flows out the rear of the ferrule holder.  This may cause epoxy to flow over the spring within a connector body, locking up the spring and creating a defective connector.  However, these cases are observable / test-able after curing.
