    I'm speaking specifically of the terminals used for the double-sided connector between the CPU and driver boards. I really just need 4 of them, but can't seem to come up with anywhere selling them...or at least selling them in smaller quantities than 100 (or without a high minimum $ order).

    The molex part number is 08-03-0304. Is there any substitutions that would work?

    Maybe i haven't been looking in the right places, though. Can anyone point me to a reputable vendor that carries them? (or a suitable substitute?)

    Thanks!

    I think some people having been using jamma solder-on connectors instead.

    #3 2 years ago

    Bigdaddy-enterprises.com has a few left. But those may be the last of them.

    Other than that, jamma edge connectors seem to be the alternative.

    A very generous pinsider has offered me a nice deal for 10 pins, and i promptly accepted!

    We really do have an awesome community here! Thanks everyone!

    There is a random mom and pop electronics store here in SLC that literally has hundreds of them. Should I buy them up for future needs from pinsiders like you?

    #7 2 years ago

    I'd say take half.

    You (and even other pinheads) won't be the only person that goes there looking for them, those double edge connectors were pretty common in the 70s/80s.

    Good for us to have a stock, but not at the expense of everyone else that needs them. Split the difference.

    Just to be certain we are talking about these right?

    I tried to buy a connector from Docent electronics but they don't know how to run an ebay listing properly, and theres no way to order off their geocities website from 1998. I really want to rebuild the harness on my Haunted House before its too late but its proving to be quite difficult!

    Pulled my hair out on this one. Regular .156 won't grip the wire. Found special "larger cradle" .156 for 18 gauge at Marco. Worked perfect.....

    No, those are still made, we're talking about the KK 4366's:

    Yep. Those are the ones I have. Sorry just found the wrong picture.

    #13 2 years ago

    I think there needs to be a petition drive in order
    to get Molex to remanufacture the lot.

    #14 2 years ago

    I tried. The dies are gone. Probably already in a Nebraska landfill....

    Wow, they wouldn't archive something like that?

    Guess that's the end of the line, then

    About 7/8 of the way down the page there is a link to 'Molex Split Pins Bag of 100' for $30. Yep it's spendy, but what ya gonna do? A buddy just ordered 100 about 2 months ago from this site and I installed on his Mortal Kombat; so they must still be available. Here is a picture from the link. The last pallet of split pins???

    I'm double checking with the guy that bought them. I game him that link in March and a week later he handed me a box of 100 pins to use. I'm assuming that's where he got them because we had a heck of a time finding it anywhere else. Once I get confirmation I'll update here.

    EDIT: He found the order receipt. He got them from Big Daddy.

    #22 2 years ago

    I just ordered a couple hundred from Big Daddy.

    I bought some not long ago from them, I just called and ordered with a credit card no problem.
    Hmmm... they have the whole harness assemblies too for good prices...

    #25 2 years ago

    I found them for .39 cents each. If you need them you need them

    Thats the problem. I'm at work all day. I don't want to have to call somebody and give my credit card number over the phone like its the stone age to order some parts. Same reason why I wouldn't deal with PBR unless my hand was completely forced. Yes, I guess it somewhat makes it my fault, but last I checked this is the 21st century. Ordering on ebay would have been convenient but even though he lists it as the 3,5,or 7 inch he actually is only selling the 3 inch on there for some reason. I asked him to bill me the difference, sell me just the pins, send me a completely new paypal money request, anything to get the part I needed so I didn't have to call, but nope just canceled my order.

    #27 2 years ago

    ordered some from big daddy. sheesh..what is it with these outdated websites? At least I could order off his site though

    #28 2 years ago

    I've had ~1000 of these on my website since Sunday....
