Question

I'm on the hunt for replacement crimp terminals for GM's fuse block and other flat blade style connectors. These things have the retainer tab on the back to snap into the connector body. They also have a spring loaded tang inside the tab. I am having no luck finding replacements for these. Does anyone know where I might find them? I've searched AMP's web site (needle in a haystack), Digikey, Mouser, and several Classic wiring companies to no avail. Look at the right of this picture from Painless for an idea of what I'm looking for.

Thanks for the help. My father in-law was here this weekend. He asked me what I was doing so I explained the connectors I was looking for. A few minutes later he came back from his pickup with a sample that was just what I needed. He works for John Deere who uses the same part. Packard is the manufacturer (P.E.D. is stamped on the connector). We found some at Waytekwire company.

It's amazing how things fall in your lap at times. Thanks again everyone. I'll end up choosing DelCity, MadeElectrical, or Waytek and pick up a 50 qty.
