    Does anyone have a source for the flat two pin connectors like used on speed sensors and early crankshaft triggers?

    I need some for an ecu project.

    Thanks,

    Aaron

    A picture would help your case.

    An internet search on "2-pin bullet connector" should get you something very similar -- they've changed the shaped of the male bullet slightly (and probably the female too), but I think it would still be compatible with the early design:

    Steve - that is close. Close enough that I ordered a set to try earlier this week. But the male (and female) are actually too large.

    That's unfortunate. I see on Digikey that they have different diameters of bullet connector terminals available:

    https://www.digikey.com/products/en/connectors-interconnects/terminals-barrel-bullet-connectors/393?k=bullet

    but they don't seem to have pre-molded bullet connectors (although I didn't look to hard). Perhaps looking thru those terminals for what you need might get you to a manufacturer name to pursue further, or you could make your own ;). What is the diameter of the male pin that you need to match?

    Are the male connectors flat blades or round bullet shaped?

    This site has a lot of the flat connectors.
    https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk

    Not seeing the ones you need for the sensor, but looks like they have the individual connector.

    Steve is correct with Digikey having a wide variety, just a little challenging to search their site.

    If you access to one of the sensors, why not take it to an auto parts store (NAPA) and see if they can match the connector?
