View Full Version : electrical connectors
01-31-2009, 07:22 PM
I just installed some auto meter gauges in my 57 chevy gauge pod and I'm trying to find a source that has multiple wire male, female one piece connectors with wires on both sides.
I'd like to be able to just disconnect the connector and lift the pod out. Hope someone can steer me to the right source.
Thanks in advance!

I got some connectors from Radio Shack for my dash. They come in 3, 6 and 9 pin male and female connectors with the terminal pins.

Thanks Don, your quick response was great. I put the pro comp ultra- lite gauges in my dash and they look great. I checked yours out a couple of times before doing mine. Guess I'll go to radio shack tomorrow and get what I need. I'll let you know how this works out.

Here's the 3 pin connector for a single gauge. That's a original trim ring that I cut the rim off, so it would fit the Autometer gauges.

If you have a Frys store in your area they have a large selection of electronic parts. I go "window shopping" every time I'm in Dallas and I can make my way over there.

,Chevy nut, I don't know if they have a Frys here in Amarillo, But I did get the connectors I needed at radio shack as Don suggested. They had 2 point to 12 point connectors, and the cost was reasonable. I'll check and see if they have a Frys here for future reference. Sure glad I didn't have to build my car the way you did. I'd probably die before I finished. I'd like to see your's once it's complete.
Thanks for the input.
