JH, I've seen you mention the water proof relays you get out of cadillacs such as in this post, do you have anymore info on these? Year/model, amp rating?

Don't know if anyone posted these yet but these are all NAPA parts you can get.

Got it off a van site.

I'll add some more pictures of the MOPAR bulkhead connector terminals and their NAPA and MOPAR part numbers to this thread to get them all in one place. Credit - these pictures are from the NAPA catalog. BTW, NAPA also has multiple versions of Ford &amp; GM terminals if anyone needs them!<br /><br />These items are all located in NAPA's Product Line NAPA Wire Products

Wire Terminal, Chrysler OEM Terminal; 18 to 20 Gauge NAPA Part: NW 725167 MOPAR OEM # 3843601

Wire Terminal, Chrysler OEM Terminal; 18 to 20 Gauge NAPA Part: NW 725166 MOPAR OEM # 3843386

As a service to those who are wiring up some heavier current or more vibration prone connections, there is a type of quick-connect terminal I discovered a while back which is generically referred to as a "Headlight" terminal, for it's ability to withstand the higher current draw of headlights. It's notable feature is the addition of a wide, flat spring tab inside the female terminal's contact area which adds additional force to the male terminal to keep it firmly in good contact. BTW, these are GM terminals: Wire Terminal, GM Metri-Pack 630 OEM Series; 14 to 16 gauge NAPA Part: NW 725194

Wire Terminal, GM Metri-Pack 480 Series; 14 to 16 Gauge NAPA Part: NW 725193

These are the GM bulkhead connector terminals. I've been told they might fit in a MOPAR, but your mileage may vary!

Wire Terminal, GM56 Series OEM Terminal; 14 to 16 Gauge NAPA Part: NW 725147

Wire Terminal, GM56 Series OEM Terminal; 14 to 16 Gauge NAPA Part: NW 725145

And here's several especially useful wiring related items, which may help keep the barn from burning down:
Fuse Tap, Fuse Taps For AGC Round Glass Fuses NAPA Part: NW 785131

Battery Cable End Tap NAPA Part: NW 785124

Battery Terminal Bolt - Quick Clamp NAPA Part: NW 785123

Hope this helps out someone. It sure took a while to put together.
And remember, Rich found the terminal numbers which made this all possible. Hats off to you Rich!!<br /><br />Clear skies!</div>

Place that I source round connectors from, and mainly older Japanese motorcycle stuff, but they have other things also, like ratcheting crimpers and accessory die sets for them...

Excellent thread. This will be of immeasurable assistance when assembling my off-road electrical kit.

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.
