mil-spec connector??

I need to make a harness for my new EFI system.

I'd like to use a small waterproof locking connector, 1 side insterted thru a hole in the firewall from the back and bolted on, the engine side with a matching plug for the entire engine harness.

Back in my Navy days, we used a lot of connectors like that. Some even had different sized terminals, lil bitty ones for 20-24 guage wire, and a few bigger ones for 12-14 gauge wire, all in the same housing.

I want one.

I haven't done an accurate count yet, but I think I'll need 6 heavier wires, maybe 14 or 16 gauge, and perhaps 20 or more lil bitty ones. Fuel pressure gauge alone has 6 24 gauge wires...lol.

I started doing some research, and it seems one must be a brain surgeon just to order this stuff... Figuring out which shell size, seal types, contacts ordered separately, blah blah blah. It makes me wish I could spend 5 minutes in my old radar room with a wire cutter, wouldn't take long to find what I need that way.

As usual, when it comes to brain surgery, I turn to you guys. Can anyone make it easy? We have an account at Newarl Electronics, and they have a several lines of this type of connector, but I can make no sense out of thier online catalog.

Re: mil-spec connector??

I know what connectors you are talking about, but can't help you with them.
However, I have seen another type of bulkhead connector used for EFI. Momar Injection has them and can sell you them alone or build a harness for you. www.momarefi.com

Heck, he could probably borrow me some!

Momar's website is down, will try again tmorrow.

And yes, the amp stuff is the stuff, or something similar... that catalog is near 150 pages though, and everything is separate, connector body's, seals, inserts, contacts, yada yada yada....

They need a kit #.

Metri-pack "Junction Systems"

You can grab the full Delphi Metri-Pack catalog here:

Not sure where to order them from though--might try Caspers Electronics.

Here's the only place I found on Google selling one as a kit:

Re: mil-spec connector??

Excellent, Harley!

I"m trying to avoid the Weatherpacks, thier just sooo damned huge. A Milspec connector can pack 30 5 amp terminals into a 1" circle, similar weatherpack would by 2x3"

Harley, I need a set, panel mount receptacle and twist lock plug. Round hole is easier to make, but I'm not that fussy, I will manage. Weatherproof. I counted 32 wires, appears all are 16-18 gauge, but did not make certain they all had to pass through the firewall. A few extras would be nice if possible.

Lemme know.

Re: mil-spec connector??

yea Harley, just like that.

Need the plug and receptacle shells with inserts, and enough male and female contacts to be able to screw a few up.

Something in the neighborhood of 32-36 pin, for 16-18 guage wire.

Some reasonable idea of where and what to get to remove the pins (if I screw any up...lol) would be handy too.

Thanks.
