Well, like the topic says, I'm looking for what I believe to be a packard 59 male connector. I've used several of the packard 56 connectors but have yet to find the male 59's. They are just like the 56's but larger right?? I've found the females, as they are used on headlights, but these darn male connectors elude me.
Thanks for any and all leads.

I can't open the link.
Think you might be looking for a 5/16" blade terminal (male). Might expand your search to producers of terminals and see if the make one.

I work for Packard, and looked in an old product handbook I have. The only 59 series male connector I found was a 3 way.
Part #
08917857

It can use any of these male blade terminals:
06288980 (10-12 gage)
08917220 (10-12 gage)
08917322 (10-12 gage)
06288981 (12 gage)
08905598 ( 1 12 gage and 1 18-20 gage)
12015989 (2 12 gage)
08905807 (14-16 gage)
06294291 ( heavy wall 18 gage)

The mating connector is part #:
02965810

I got the image from http://www.powerandsignal.com
which is Pioneer, a company which resells Packard products.
You can go here and put in the part numbers, to get a drawing, and descriptions.
There is a minimun quantity that you must buy, though. The number is 1-800-722-5273. You may be able to request a sample of just a few connectors.

Just wondering, do you really need the extra current capacity of a 59 series, according to the handbook, a 56 series with 10 gage as a capacity of 48.9 .

*edit*
I found a 1 way connector, but the mating part is listed as a fuel pump.
Part #
12020273

One of these 1 way female connectors may work with it.
02973119
02977878

Also, some of these part numbers are listed as obsolete (may not be available).

John, you are right, I'm looking for the terminals, not the connectors. Brain fade I guess. Thank you very much for the part numbers Ken! I wish the site had pictures of those specific terminals, too old I guess. The one I need looks like this



I believe that one is actually a 56, but the one I need is wider. I do need it for 10-12ga wire. I don't know if the load really necessitates this connector, but it is what was used from the factory. I rebuilt the engine harness on my Mom's suburban; go figure it needs 3 of these. Oh well, I have the 56's in there now, but they are loose. It has to be one of the first four you listed... any guesses as to which one I should try?
Thanks a million; the people on this site always come thru!!

Thank you very much Ken, you saved me big time on this one! Also thank you for having me take another look, I feel really stupid after not seeing the images the first time. I think I clicked on the documents tag, saw no picture, and went looking elsewhere. Oh well, it's been one of those weeks!
