My wiring at the switch end has frayed enough I had to take it off. While trying to get the wire out I mangled the spade a bit. All the similar sized spades from hardware stores I have tried do not fit. Is this a special connector or just a matter of tooling changes on new spades make them not fit?

I'll cobble something together that works but just curious if there is a correct part I can order somewhere.

I have always just used a regular female spade terminal that I crimped/stretched to get a snug fit on the sending unit.

Thanks for the info. I'll just bend and crimp one till I get it to work.

I think this housing will work on oil pressure switch.


This is the female terminal that fits the above plastic housing:


You can find the brass female terminal at any auto parts store.

They fit perfectly.
