    Does anyone make just this connector with no wires from it? I need to adapt a new Smith Spreader harness to an older controller.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    I just ran across this connector 15 minutes ago and no I can't find it. :angry:

    I'm looking at pin connectors for some odd ball stuff. If I run across the name of it, I'll post back here.

    Problem is that I didn't see just the connectors, it was always with a pigtail like what is in your picture.

    Those would work if I splice both ends of both the cables...I was hoping to find the right connector and only splice one side of the wires to mate to my new Smith controller. ( The old controllers are wired different than the newer ones)

    If I am remembering correctly those get soldered together( wire into lug) and I had been taught that you never want to solder copper wire into a lug that has high amp draw as it cause excess resistance..it's best to crimp it

    Lead is not as good a conductor as copper itself..in fact copper has 13 times less resistance than lead
    I've known about the increased resistance but just read the 13 times less in this article

    We crimp
    solder and heat shrink on those type of plugs we use them on our plows and jumper cables they work great

    I have not.

    I did find the picture again though. Found this same connector labeled as a snoway part and a Meyer/Diamond part.
