Bingo! Found my '70 SS dash harness connectors!

For those of you who had followed my thread on modification of my '70 SS warning light to gauge configuration here:
https://www.chevelles.com/forums/show...657&highlight=

I was given some help from a local guy who told me what other vehicles used the same style of 12 pin dash cluster harness connectors, and various possible sources for getting new ones.

Well, yesterday I went on a road trip to a large salvage yard and pulled the connector from what I think was a mid 80's Chevy pick-up. The plug has a 18 slot, 16 used conductor plug, not 12, but hey- plenty of spares.....

If you donít push the limits how are you going to find the weak spots?

Re: Bingo! Found my '70 SS dash harness connectors!

Ya know, not long after your original post I was thinking to one of my early automotive projects...In junior high I was helping my buddy with his '86 Cavalier. Had a real crappy digital speedometer cluster. Flexible printed circuit board. My memory is hazy, but I bet that also used the same style of connectors. Just a thought...

If you are talking about the PC board connector, there are 3-4 different configurations on them (12-14-18 pin), and one will not plug into the back of a dash housing for the other. While they do use the same terminals, the connector bodies are unique to the dash that they plug into. In other words, an 18 pin truck one will not plug into the back of a 70-2 chevelle dash that was punched out for a 12 pin.

This thread is 6 months old, he had the correct connector for the PCB.. just needed the spades.. and found them.
