RE: Quick disconnect connector
Looks like a metripac 150

If you just want to order a couple ebay has kits with the bodies, pins, seals

This place has better pricing but you have to buy larger quantities:

RE: Quick disconnect connector
I’ve had good luck ordering small quantities of pins or connector bodies from mouser.com. They are out of Texas. It is tricky to figure what connector to order however.

RE: Quick disconnect connector
I have some of metripac 150 on order should arrive today. I have watch a few videos of how to put these types of connectors together, not as diffacult as I thought.

How about a video or lessons automotive electricity, I know enough to hurt myself or my truck. Maybe a lesson in soldering correctly.

RE: Quick disconnect connector
How about a list of the plugs on our engine harness, and trucks. From my observations there are only a few different plugs on these harnesses. The most common are the plugs for the sensors. Those are the ones I am always concerned about, as they are the ones handled the most, and prone to breaking, especially those god awful locking ones.

Wasn't there something on Quickserve, photos of each plug and part numbers?

here are some places to look...

Or better yet, at a mostly hidden, but very useful area on quickserv for looking up wiring and plugs (not even most dealers know about this link) ...

RE: Quick disconnect connector
I'm not up on what connectors you guys have on your trucks. My '89 379/444xt uses Packard 56 (now Delphi 56) connectors inside and mostly Weather-Pack connectors outside. Some Metri-Pack connectors on things like the air dryer and speedo/tach sensors. The firewall pass through is a Metri-Pack header that uses three different sized pins

Here's a Delphi catalogue:

http://www.koehlke.com/pdf/Delphi/Delphi...atalog.pdf

It's over 400 pages long but pretty easy to narrow down to what you're working with. The numbers of the various connector series are usually the width of the pins. So the Metri-Pack 150, 280, 480, and 630 series have 1.5, 2.8, 4.8, and 6.8mm wide pins. Lots of things are color coded. The wire seals are coded by the wire size that they are meant to seal. If the connector body is a different color than what the catalog shows it's probably slightly different so it doesn't get plugged into the wrong thing

I'm not familiar with the Deutsch connectors. There are catalogs all over though. This one has an explanation of the part numbering in the first few pages:

https://www.dalroad.com/wp-content/uploa...-Guide.pdf

All the connectors have special tools to take them apart. Sometimes you can improvise but you risk breaking something. The tools are pretty cheap, and you probably only need two or three for every connector on your truck, so might as well get them. You can spend a fortune on crimpers if you buy the exact one that the manufacturer says you need for every different connector. I've found this to do most everything I need to do:

https://www.waytekwire.com/item/419/U-Ba...ping-Tool/

You're just trying to get the wire smashed evenly inside the terminal, takes a little practice but not too difficult. I solder everything in addition to crimping too. There are videos on youtube for how to do that. A good soldering iron and quality rosin core solder is all you need (wire brush to clean the tip helps)

Not sure what else might help. I'm not an electrician, but completely rewired my engine and hood harnesses a couple years ago. I've also done a lot of marine wiring on the boats I've crewed on
