Howdy,
On my 76 RC 440 with stock distributor, I have a two wire pigtail that comes off the distributor and goes into a two way bullet connector that looks stock. The bullet connector is connected to two wires that go into a wrapped bundle of cables including the alternator output among others. The insulation on the two wires has cracked from heat stress so I need to replace them, and it may have cracked right at the base of one of the two way bullet connectors.

I want to know the following:

1. Can I get a new two way bullet connector anywhere that you know of, and if so, where? Part numbers?

Seems like I could replace the two way bullet with well installed insulated spade connectors if I can't get the two way bullet connector? I'd really rather have the stock connector if at all possible.

Thanks for advice.

Mac

Excellent! Thanks for the info. I looked at Checker Auto but they did not have them. I will take a trip to NAPA then.

It's a 2-pole flat connector and any auto parts store should have them...also many hardware stores carry them. wire colors may not match the harness colors.

Just an FYI, I bought some connectors from a parts store that looked the same as the stock ones, but the new one, did not connect to the stock one . So, plan on changing both connectors.

The one I got from NAPA (per above part number) does not mate well with the stock one, so I will have to replace both. It will give me a chance to perfect my crimp and solder technique. :)
