I have heard that you can replace the 4 pin connector with a trailer connector. Not sure if this can be done on the old (pre 05/85) under the fuel tank connector. I've been scouring the forum to find out, but can't seem find anything. Looking for some input here...thanks in advance.

Here are pictures of: 1) the old female connector that I have since replaced with the "spare" connector that was in the relay box...the 2 "fried" connectors are the pos and neg to the fuel pump; and 2) the male part of the connector...my concern is that the 2 darker connectors (pos and neg connections to the fuel pump) are not becoming glitchy and compromising the necessary electrical connection/power to the fuel pump.





Again...wondering if I can replace the whole thing with a trailer connector.?.?

I have heard the 4 pin connector for the mic on a CB radio will do the job or there is an unused connector in the relay box that can be used. I think it's for the alarm or such but usually not used. I have some here on old harnesses but it's a long way to send it.

A bit of cloth wrapped around a small screwdriver and coated with Autosol or similar should clean those. It'll take a bit of patience though because you'll need to rotate the screwdriver around the outside of the pin. If that fails, reach for some 1000-grade wet'n'dry.

Same as Rick, I used the metal plug of an old CB radio Microphone, still ok today and the threaded collar on the plug screws onto the fitting on the tank.

regards Bushy.

Thanks y'all...Dai, I'll sure get some Autosol and see if that'll do the trick.
