Bill, thanks very much for the reply, from the pictures all I can say is this is NOT a Juinior Timer connector, as there is no metal push clip, but uses the traditional plastic tab retainer.

But, I'll definately archive the sites, as running across this type of quality resource is rare.

Thanks again, more mail to read. cheers

    Are these flat or round pins, in a line or an array?
If they are flat, in a line, with a metal spring retainer around the 
outside of the female housing - they are probably an AMP "Junior 
Timer"connector look at the following web pages. Do you see the correct 
type there? I believe that Bosch used these connectors on many of their

The female end is not the challenge, as I've got a salvaged harness that I could butcher one off of, but I'm looking to keep in intact unless necessary to butcher it.
