connector options

With my now installed SS gauge set, I am looking for the terminal and connector that goes atop of the temp sender.
Can someone post up any pics of what GM used?
Does anyone know where I can pick up the terminal and connector?

I have had to make connections to pins like what you have shown and not had any "correct" terminals for one but what I have done is take a female bullet connector like below and then fold in the hole to where now it will grab or fit onto a smaller diameter pin. Once I get a snug tight fit, I crimp on the wire to it, then find some heat shrink tubing to fit over the whole works and shrink the tubing down.

Look for the right angle or "Flag" version of it.

This is the only one I could find, I think the same kind of plug is on the gas tank sending unit, I think I got one at the local parts store help section.

OK, here's the offer. I bought one of those kits and did not use the part you need on the right side of the below picture. I also did not use all of the braided covering when I fixed the wire on my 68.



I'll PM you about it.

Jim

You're Welcome. It was nice meeting you and hopefully we will see each other at some local shows.

Hopefully it's what you need and works out.
