So as I work through this Fish Tales and am converting to LED I'm missing the upper half of the backbox GI. Looks like I need to rebuild J120 considering it wasn't plugged in correctly and one of the wires came off in my hand. What tool do I need to punch the wires into a new connector ?

You can tell those have come apart multiple times.
Time to ditch the IDC plugs and go straight to crimp on plugs.
Will need new plug plus contacts and one key.
Can find these here:

Also need a crimp tool. For low volume and a decent crimper, see Sargent 1026-CT.
