Have no connection with this company, have found plugs and sockets when visiting it in the past, have now delved deeper into it

Lots to be found here https://www.automotiveconnectors.com/all-products....

Many parts aren't easily found

Search - Lucas Rists - Heaven on earth is the result of the search

Hi.

Thank you for listing/linking the manuals.
I have looked through your first link.
And they have the ring terminal that I want.
But I don’t know what size to get.
I’m not familiar with awg sizes.
Which one should I get, to fit onto a tvr chimaera positive cable to the starter motor.
Thank you .
Kind regards.

I thought a relay was a race with 4 runners and a baton, until I discovered Pistonheads TVR forum. whistle

Thank you Penny, would this gel be a good thing to fill my fan connectors with?
At present,people have suggested vaseline to prevent corrosion.But on the T350 the connectors sit adjacent to the flat radiator and the heat causes the vaseline to melt and disappear!

Yes the gel should be ideal for the job as long as there's enough length of cable that will allow you to immerse the whole plug and cables into a container of gel, perhaps it would be good to make an oblong box section out of plastic or buy a small hobby box, fill with gel and immerse. Wouldn't do any harm in leaving the box section or box in place

Would a sealed plug be better? https://www.automotiveconnectors.com/connector-kit...

You would need to shop around for heavy enough plugs and terminals that will handle the fan motor current draw
