What are these called?

Can anyone advise what these types of electrical connectors are called? I believe this one came out of my 56 Chevy wagon, and it will snap onto a post (possibly like the ones at the back of the gauges). They are shaped like a little hairpin and if I can find them they might be the perfect solution to reusing some S10 gauges.

Thanks!

Re: What are these called?

I used the female end of these butt connectors and they seemed to hold. (with a little pressure from some pliers)

I think the problem with my set up was not using the PCM.


sorry, can't help you with the 56 plug

Try here also the 90 degree one fits on gauge studs.I looked for that same end for months . Look up automotive unusual wire ends.

They look like one or the other of these but I have no idea of what the sizes are.

I think what you are looking for are just below the green push in clip wire holder.

https://store.fillingstation.com/dep...+Hardware.html There is a male and a female end.

Re: What are these called?

This type of stuff has always been challenging to find. What it's called is a terminal. Seems silly, but if it's a gm designed and made part they use names like "Terminal, instrument cluster, volt gauge" to describe it. Locating these terminals usually requires one of two methods. 1) open the parts catalog and look up the item by application. 2) open the standard parts catalog and locate the item by visually matching it to illustrations.

Please check out http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=121305 . It *looks* like what you have is similar to 2962650. There may be differences such as the gauge wire the terminal is designed for although I'm not seeing that.

You can take the part number and query the database to locate other pages with the same part number:
http://www.gmpartswiki.com/query

Which can bring you to other pages with images of various terminals:
http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=20288

http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=121305

As well as other books with the same number:

http://www.gmpartswiki.com/getpage?pageid=92339

This is the 1990 parts history catalog which shows 2962650 as discontinued.

So, you may end up looking for old harness bits in order to find this connector.

Re: What are these called?

Thanks guys, I was hoping that I had just been stupid while searching for them on the internet. It seems they really are rare little devils.

Tempest67: Its funny you suggest that cuz on my 56 Chevy wagon we did something similar. I found that if I hit the male end of a bullet connector with a die grinder to remove the end, it would slip firmly onto those studs. I did play around with other connectors on the S10 gauges without luck. I can always reuse the S10 connectors (not elegant, but functional).

1project2many: That’s an awesome resource for hunting down parts, and yes it does look like part 2962650. I had hoped that I was simply not using the correct search phrases, and that these were a common connector. That is clearly not the case, so I will come up with a home made solution.

I will post the results in my build thread (Project Fargolet).

Re: What are these called?

I have been thinking about these connectors all day. I realized the terminals may have been used on the back side of power window switches through the '80s. A few searches located an easily purchased replacement connector PT546 / 12125634.

Further searching lead to this page:
https://t-h-e-door.blogspot.com/2019...door-lock.html

Which clearly shows the terminal you are searching for:


This page really is just a series of images of related parts and links, but they also have this information below one of the pictures of a terminal:
Pico 5846pt 16 14 Awg Gm Power Window And Door Locks

Searching for Pico 5846PT finds an amazon page with the product:
https://www.amazon.com/Pico-5846pt-G...ews/B004BT8GJI

And the discontinued GM number 2965880. Searching for the discontinued number finds this great page which shows multiple versions of the correct terminals depending on wire gauge along with a note for 5310 housing and used in ford fuel tank sending unit.
http://www.qualitydist.net/piunoelte.html

A quick search located the 2021 Pico catalog:
http://www.picowiring.com/catalog.html

And the universal and GM connectors and terminals section in PDF:
http://www.picowiring.com/pdf/Cat-45.pdf

Which shows a connector that appears to be the single connector for the Pico terminals above:

Ultimately I am sure if these will not work you will find something in the Pico catalog to fit the bill.

1project2many:

You are an internet sleuthing MASTER! I spent hours fooling around on the computer and could not locate those. I have copied all those links you provided to a page I keep for future reference (sort of a personal “sticky” for useful stuff).

Thanks again!
