Wire connectors and terminals

I have a 1967 convertible. I just installed an HEI distrbutor. Can anyone identify the GM/Packard Series 56 female terminals that were used at the firewall fuseblocks? A size or part number? Supplier?


Thanks

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

I did look at that, thanks. There appear to be different sizes and part numbers for them. I'd like to be able to use a part number or size when I buy some.

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

Try Waytek also. I bought all my primary wire, terminals and connectors through them. They are generally a lot cheaper too, but will have minimum quantities on their stock.

Packard connectors are available with different sized "buckets". The buckets are where the wire and insulation is clamped. Most of the wiring is 18Ga, but16-14Ga will do them OK along with the 16 & 14 gauge too.

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

I was surprised to find those Packard terminals in my local auto parts stores' HELP section. Of course they only had about 6 in a package (way over priced) but served my purposes. You can get them in larger packages if you need several though.

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

Are they all the same dimensions other than where the wire attaches?

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

Love this web site! Just clicked on Terminal Supply and called them. Always wanted Packard wire crimpers and have never seen them. Now they're on their way.

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

How much were they Fred?
You know MSD have these.. http://www.jegs.com/p/MSD-Ignition/M...47779/10002/-1

All the jaws are interchangeable too to save you buying more sets of pliers. (should be with the ones you bought too)
3506 is the Packard..

Re: Wire connectors and terminals

Well, the first two I looked at were over $250. When the lady heard me gasp she suggested those. Cost is $47 and they do Packard wire. For that price I'll have to use them at least once a decade.
