Default Kavlico sensor wiring

Does anybody know the source for the male plug and wire connectors that Kavlico uses? I would like to crimp the the pins directly to the shielded wire from the engine module without splicing onto the incredibly huge wire supplied with the sensor.

Default Looking

I did exactly that during my build - didn't want to splice the included pigtail. Let me dig around and see if I can find where I ordered them from.

Jon, check with me on Monday. A customer of mine found the pin P/N and so I just re-pinned the connector to avoid the splice. I might have that P/N at work.

Default Delphi 150 Connectors

Those are Delphi Metri-Pack 150 Series connectors. The Mouser part number is 829-12065287 for the body and 829-12089290 for the crimp on contacts. Before you mess up a handful of parts like I did, you assemble them by threading the wire through the connector body, crimp the terminal on, then slide the terminal back until it clicks.

Is it possible to disassemble my existing connectors? I tried by putting a slim piece of metal into the back to collapse the latch and pulling the wire forward through the front, but can't seem to get it loose.

I have the replacement crimp contacts so was able to see where the catch tab is located.

Yes, you can disassemble the old pins. I started with a paper clip that I ground down flat on 2 sides. then I dropped it and couldn't find it. Ended up using a hair pin. much wider and strong. I can send a pic if you give me an email address. You have to remove the rubber strain relief and release from the back side.

the tang points forward. you have to go from behind and push forward.
