GM electrical connector

Hey everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get the GM printed circuit board Bow Type connector from? It was used for the gauge clusters I believe from the 70s-80s. They show pictures of some on here http://www.fmsiinc.com/terminals.htm , but I cannot order from them because they only ship in canada. Thanks for the replies

Ben

Take one (or a pic) down to a NAPA store & see if they have what you need.

I actually tried that and they really do not have anything in the way of that type of connector. They told me to get the pigtail from a junk yard and splice that in

I call B.S.

the connectors on the fmsi page ARE available at the local NAPA...in the Belden wire & cable accessories catalog. Just get the guy to let you look through the catalog....

I talked to napa in another town, and they said they did not have the connectors. I asked them to look in the catalog and they said what they had in store is all that would be in the catalog. I found a website, i believe it is pointeproducts.net, had the connectors I was looking for. Thanks for the help.
