Re: [T3] FI plugs


I think he was referring to sources of supply for new connectors,
rather than physical location.  I was able to get a complete set of
both the controller box contacts and the injector/sensor contacts from
the local chain parts place(Champion, now out of business).  They
didn't have them in stock, but had to order them out of a catalog with
special parts.  Had them in the next day.  Beck-Arnley brand.  They
also had the plug shells in the catalog, I've got plenty so I didn't
order any.  You can get the contacts out of the shell with a paperclip
or a jeweler's screwdriver, just depress the little latch on the
contact.  I've also seen the injector plugs for sale at foreign car
parts places with about a 3" set of leads, apparently you're supposed
to splice them into the existing harness instead of crimping new
contacts on.  I wouldn't recommend that except as a last resort.  Good
crimping tools are expensive, an adequate one can be found at Radio
Shack.  I crimp AND solder, now.  Harness rebuilding is going to be
the spring/summer task.  Just need to find the right size wire with
some teflon insulation and a way to mark the wires.  Good luck.
