    OK, I lied.  The previous post wasn’t the last post.  Hopefully, this is the last post.

    I am not one to give up easy so I decided as a last ditch effort to search on eBay and see if I could find someone selling surplus connectors or Chinese knockoffs.  I came across an ad which I suspect is selling Chinese knockoff parts, but the part that was valuable to me was the part number for the male connector shell was included in the ad.  I tried to include the url in this post, but it is very long and screwed up the formatting so I had to delete it.  If you want to risk buying Chinese knockoffs, let me know and I can take a screen shot of the link and post it here as an image.

    Using that number, I found this old Delphi drawing which looks like what I need and the one drawing note says it mates with the 12162017 female connector.  I then searched on this new number and, wonder of wonders, Mouser still sells it and has nearly 2,000 still in stock.  I suspect it is no longer made though as Newark doesn’t sell it and I didn’t find it anywhere else.  So, I just placed an order with Mouser at just over $30 including shipping and we shall see if the parts are correct when they arrive.

    Good Work Matthew!!!

    I was looking at that part as it was one of the only two Male plugs in the Metri-Pac 150 Series with 2 Pins
    I can't imagine anyone producing Connectors and telling the user they must produce the Mate themselves.

    I was working the backdoor based on the connector being an old-style Automotive Airconditioner Clutch Connector.
    If all else fails, NAPA sells a Pigtail adapter with the connector we need.
    It would allow connecting a newer Compressor to an older Wiring harness.

    It shouldn't be this hard!

    Just for reference, they also have the Reverse Adaptor.

    P.S.
    When dealing with those super-long URLs, You can often delete the First Question Mark and everything after it, and the link will still work.

     Were you looking at This?

    Yes, that is the eBay link that got me the part number that allowed me to find the parts at Mouser.

    The NAPA connector is an option also but appears to be a molded unit so would still require a wire to be spliced in between and likely doesn’t use Tefzel wire.  I haven’t received the Mouser order yet, but if the parts aren’t correct for some reason, I will try the NAPA product.

    I agree that is shouldn’t be this hard, but how else could you sell $30 worth of parts for $150?

    $150 would only get you ONE of the Female Connectors.  Ouch!
    I think your Mouser order will be correct.
    If it came to it, I would opt for the discrete Ebay Parts over the molded NAPA Pigtails.
