Where to buy additional non-insulated terminals ?
I've installed an American Autowire kit in my car and everything went really well. But I had a few mistakes and bad crimps so I need some additional terminals, specifically the golden colored male '56-series' that are used for single wires, as I don't want to try to make the double-wire version work for a single wire.
I called AAW and they don't sell those (why ?), although they sell most of the others in packs of 10. The helpful tech told me that they would send me a few free in the mail, but that never happened. I'm one of those car guys that likes to have spares of everything small: bolts, screws, fasteners of all types, and terminals. I have plenty of insulated terminals, but need the non-insulated type that go into the plastic connectors.
So...where does one find the same type of non-insulated terminals used by AAW and presumably Painless ? Surely these are off-the-shelf items and a kit that includes about a dozen or so of each type would be a good seller. Is there a technical trade name for these type of connectors ?
Thanks for anyone that can complete my 'collection'.
