mil spec cannon harness?

mil spec cannon harness?

I am a car hobbiest and am looking for a 41 pin mil spec cannon harrness connector. The male and female, I also need the pins and the crimper. But I can't find a place to buy this things, if any one could point me to a website or a actual store here in central FL I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you

Thank you

Occasionally the crimpers turn up on ebay, I suspect the don't pass qc at some point, and instead of scrapping them, some enterprising individual sees a profit opportunity.

search for "Daniels crimping tool"

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

I cannot understand why you would use a connector like that in a car. It's completely unsupported by the auto industry. If you ever need to make a repair anywhere on a road trip it's quite likely your expensive connector will have to be ruined to get going again.  

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

For the same reason folks put Allison V-12 aircraft engines in '34 Fords, "because you can!

I bet if the OP has the stroke to pin out & wire this connector, he can "get it going again" with no problem.

That's part of the fun!!

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

In the case of the ford a performance change that can easily be observed.  With the connector you use more expensive parts that are harder to support because of some emotional reason.

There are technically uninformed people that will spend an extra $30 for speaker cables with gold plated connectors because advertising has convinced them they can hear the difference.  

Who am I to to spoil their fun.  

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

Don't think you'd need a 41-pin connector for a cannon...

Not that it wouldn't an interesting concept, but I recall reading a novel about that sort of thing, where all cars on the road were equipped with machine guns and rocket launchers and the like.  Sort of like the recent Death Race movies...

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

Not wishing to split hairs here, but read the first three words of the post:

"I am a car hobbyist"

This explains the "emotional aspect"

Your example of speaker wires a perfect example. Alessandro will build you an Amp with a silver or gold chassis, if you like. Can you hear the difference? Only in the uptake of breath, when you tell you guests how much it cost!

why build this?

(or anything else on that web page)

or this:


ah, excess!


RE: mil spec cannon harness?

RE: mil spec cannon harness?

Very nice! I am sympathetic to your endeavors. I'm currently installing a 4AGE Silvertop in my '70 Lotus Europa.
