    Anyone know of a source for a female electrical connector, bullet type that has a 90 degree angle? Like the one in the image attached.

    It doesn't need to be exact. Even a bare connector would be fine. It's the 90 degree bend I'm interested in. I'm a little uncomfortable with bending a straight connector.

    To be more specific, it's not for spark plugs but for instrument gauges. So it needs to be smaller plugs. About an 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch (4.7 mm).

    Thanks. I'm looking for just the end that I can solder into my own wiring harness and not have to splice it in.

    Thanks for searching.. I may go with this if I can't find something else.

    I was going to suggest this style of GM connector but a quick check showed the ends, Auveco 15503, were discontinued in 2007 although others may sell them. If you have access to any old GM wiring (50's-60's) it might be possible to find a used one and reuse the end. Picture shows a double wire but a single should be easier to find if you can find a old harness to cut up. Usually used for gauge connections, fuel sender.
    Found some, a little pricey ($1.20 each) but should still be out there.

    If this is for older GM gauges you want the ones in above post. Ford style would probably be too big.

    Yes, this is for a ford product.
     
  9. Can you use a bare female bullet connector and wrap your stripped wire around the outside of it and solder?

    I'm not sure I follow. It's the bare female connector I'm looking for but bent 90 degrees.

    rock auto had soem in the terminal and connectors pages . but they are not cheap . another source is terminal supply company , they have no minimums
     
  12. Take a solder-on female bullet connector and wrap your stripped wire around the end that you would normally put the wire in and crimp, then melt some solder on the wire/connector. slip a piece of shrink tube over the whole thing and apply heat, done!

    Straight pins or perhaps threaded studs? Just fixed one on my F350 today, had the exact same push on 90 that was all corroded. I just used 2 10/32 nuts and a ring terminal to repair.
     
  14. Any Ford's in the local 'yards?? These connectors were as common as incorrect weather forecasts.

    ok.. so by wrapping the wire around the end and soldering, that's how I create the 90 degree bend. I think I follow. That's an interesting idea.

    I was hoping for it to look stock. It just seems strange that they are not available. There's got to be plenty of people out there looking for the same thing.

    I'm creating a entirely brand new harness. It just seems a shame to have to splice in pieces of an old harness.

    Herb- I know what you're looking for. They don't make it. I went through the same thing. Had to solder some pieces together to make one.
