D300 4WD switch connector

OK, this has been driving me nuts for some time now. I cannot find the correct size electrical connector that attaches to the 4WD switch on the D300. Its just a small post connection. I have tried various push-on wire connectors that are either too big or too small. The post is not threaded so I can't use a nut. Any ideas?

Yeah, I've tried several different versions of that pigtail with no luck. That little post is just an odd size.

I think on my 86, the switch has a plastic washer? around the base of it and the connector goes over the post and snaps on to the plastic washer. This decribes it better. http://www.quadratec.com/products/im...%2F5021-lg.jpg

I got the harness from collins bros. It was the 4wd light and reverse light harness. Cost less than $25.
edit: It looks like it is $40 now. http://collinsbros.stores.yahoo.net/treliinliwih.html

Yep.... that's the connector! Ughhhh, not willing to drop 40.00 to hack off that connector though. I have an auto so I don't need the rest of that harness. Rats.

Thread from the dead!

VACJ7,
Did you ever find a good replacement for that 4WD indicator connector? Or does anyone else know where to get one?

Mike, I did not. Dang thing is always falling off too. I used some small screw drivers to try to close the female connector and some dialectric grease and it held for a while.

Paul & Mike,

see if you can find out if they are the same as the quadratrec tcase. If so I have one one my 360 doner waggy and LSUtiger has on his 401 donor waggy. I could mail each one of yall one.

Hey MoC,
Don't you have a D300 in your CJ7? Can you cut it off your Waggy and see if it plugs onto your D300 switch? Or, take your switch out of the D300 and see if it plugs into the Waggy harness? I would assume they are the same but we all know what happens when you assume.

Couldn't you slide the slightly bigger on one, solder it, and then a heat shrink tube. Should work and the the solder wouldn't give off that much heat on the switch. Just a thought.

I will check today and see what there is to see.

why not take a smaller connector and stretch it out to fit with a nail or small screwdrive then put a small bit of silicone on it and push it on.

or take a larger one and use a cimping tool and give it a squeeze...
