Default Cannon/Amphenol Connectors

Does anyone have a source for the pins (male & female) used in the Cannon/Amphenol connectors used by Bluebird? The connectors used with our generator have several pins in need of replacement.

I hate to wire around the old connectors, especially the ones at the control box.

I have an insertion/removal tool but it may not be suitable for these connectors. A source for the correct tool would be helpful.

Thanks

Try looking at DigiKey (www.digikey.com), they have most anything electronics related....

Thanks John,

I'll give them a look--I have Allied's print catalog, the "digikey" appears to be more user friendly.

Randy, hope you're back in the shop soon.

There are some gold plated pins on Ebay but I don't know their gender or size. I have a box of unused military plugs & sockets of various types but cannot find. Ebay had a male bulkhead connector which I purchased for .99 & received today. The pins (male) appear to be the same size as the ones on the Cannon plug on the Kohler. Still looking for the female pins for the sockets and the proper tool to remove & replace the pins.

Take Care,

Sounds like you're going to need some volunteers to load a trailer for you to pull to RATS.
