    Default Wiring pinouts. Anywhere to buy in aus? Which connectors are which?

    Howdy all.

    I'm making a new engine harness for my old commo (vb) as I have to add in some circuits and ive cut n shut the orig harness a few times n figure its time to do it properly, rather than just piggy backing the new circuits n dodging it up like I have in the past.

    At this point I only want to make the engine harness and re-pin the standard eng bay connectors.

    As far as I can see my pinouts look like either packard 56 series, or metric 630 series? Does anyone know which? And where I can buy them in aus?

    The oil pressure sender and water temp sender terminals look like a packard 56, but have a little raised section so they don't slip off. Any idea what theses are and where to buy them?

    The car uses these same terminals in all of the eng bay and most of the connectors I've looked at throughout so I'm happy to buy in mild bulk (200-300) as I'll redo more of the wrg in future.

    Any help is much appreciated! ! Cheers.

    If you ask a question that you don't expect an answer to.
    Expect an answer you won't like.

    Try EFI hardware in Mitcham - they stock a heap of multi pin automotive connectors

    I need more circuits and to modify it a bit too much for that. But could be a good source for the terminals! !

    I have all the connectors, just need to re-pin them. Using my modded harness as the guide for lengths n stuff, then pinching the connectors off it.

    They don't list the packard terminals on their site. But I'll give them a call on Monday.

    Thanks for the tips guys!
