    HELP! Electrical Connector Needed

    I've been working on my buddy's STX-12F. It's had some electrical problems that we traced to a corroded connector. We pulled the rest of the connectors apart and found more problems. One connector is in bad condition and I'm in search of a replacement.

    The connector in question is the brown termination plug that can hold up to 12 wires. I can use the cap, or just a metal strip out of the cap that has 4 pins on it (see picture). I believe one of the gray connectors would work as well. If I can't locate the part, I'll fabricate one out of stainless steel.

    It may be difficult to find the exact connector you are looking for, but check on the mouser.com site. They have a good selection of waterproof molex style connectors. You could also buy a new connector that's a different style, but as long as you buy the male and female sides, and get a waterproof one you could get the tool and crimp a new one in place..

    I've also had some luck with finding molex connectors at my local NAPA which had a selection of various shapes and sizes.

    Agreed. Also look at weatherpack connectors which would be much more durable long term.

    My friend is fabricating the metal strip from a utility knife blade. I think it will work. Thanks for the ideas!

    I would recommend that everybody check these connectors on their 'Skis and apply some silicon seal, 3M 4200, or just waterproof grease around the edges to keep water out. These plugs in the -12F and -15F are mounted low in the hull where water can collect. The harness needs to be moved up higher in the hull.

    The Yamaha part is very similar but spaced different.

    Actually, in this case I think you could pull out the metal strip and insert it into the Kawasaki plug. Anyway, my friend came by a little while ago and had his new terminal strip installed in the plug and it worked perfectly.
