    .... Not sure how many install remove cycles they've been through, but the original Molex spec we worked off of was in excess of 1000 and I doubt any original game has been close to that number.

    Durability specs for all Molex 01" and 0.156" KK contacts is clearly stated at 25 cycles. After 25 cycles, the mating resistance begins to go upward exponentially. This covered both IDC and discrete crimp contacts -- the pin mating characteristics were the same for both.

    If you do lots of 0.156" contacts - watch ebay for a Molex 2445A crimp tool. Can often get serviceable crimpers at about $40.
    Right now, there is a decent HTR2445A $64. Might need new main spring which is pretty cheap.
    And there is one at $25 that needs a replacement locator at about $16.

    There is also one at $40 without locator and is not predrilled for a locator - avoid that one.
