Hey guys,

I managed to pull a terminal off of one of the wires in the loom. I believe it belongs to the bunch of wires which lock into the connector for the igniter unit. I was going through the loom to clean off corrosion and cover the connections in grease, then broke this one off. The exposed wire that is left on the loom is a little corroded, so I'll just pretend it was compromised before hand ;)

I can't find anything quite like it locally or online:

It has a more square shape than any terminals I've seen online, and also has a cutout to lock into the connector. Can I just use a more standard terminal and maybe cut a slot in the back to lock it into the connector? Or does anyone have a source for the right terminals online?

Thanks! I did contact Joe yesterday and he hooked me up pretty quickly. He knows his stuff.

For future reference, the terminals are available from http://www.newark.com. Just search for Newark part number 90B3324 or the manufacturer part number 172774-1.

I've ordered a few so I'll be sure to post on how these terminals work out.

I received these terminals fairly quickly from the supplier mentioned above, and they were indeed a perfect match.

I was able to get a good crimp with a ratcheting crimp tool, but I had to pre-bend the large tangs which crimp into and grip the insulation to get them to fit in the die of the tool. I'm not sure if there is a special tool for these particular terminals, but I got it to work anyway ;).

I would recommend contacting Joe at Cycle Terminal if you ever have any wiring projects, he was very helpful and quick to respond to email.
