Default Source for fuseblock terminals?

I'm looking to add a circuit or two to the empty spots in the under-dash fuseblock / fuse panel in the '98 LeSabre. I'm looking for a source for the terminals that press into the block and accept the pins on the mini-fuse.

I found a thread over on an Impala forum where a guy has the same issue:
http://www.impalassforum.com/vBullet...d.php?t=192367

He wound up getting a junkyard fuse block and pulling some terminals himself (these pics swiped from his thread):

So, anyone know of a source for these terminals (other than JY)?

Not sure on your year, but all connectors and terminal part numbers are called out in my FSM'* (at least connectors are.....terminals possible).

Can you please post a pic of the other side of the terminals?

These look like an unsealed Metri-Pack 280 series item. I'll have to do a little research. Individual terminals may be possible, I don't know that strips with terminals are (at least not without some moderate cost).

I will post a pic of the other side of my actual fuse panel when I get the chance.

Individual terminals (not strips) are all I need.

It'll be either 12 or 14 AWG.

But n/m, I went ahead and picked up a '97 LeSabre fuse panel on EBAY:

If anyone else wants some terminals out of this thing, let me know.

Hopefully that will work out for you then.

I've got about 180 of the terminal below (P/N: 12110843). This is a Female Metri-Pack 280 Tin Plated Terminal, Cable Range 0.50 - 0.35 mm2, Cable Insulation Range 2.19 - 1.47 mm.



I suspect you will need:

P/N: 12129663 for 3.0mm2 wire (12 AWG)
P/N: 12129424 for 2.0 - 1.0 mm2 wire (14 AWG - 16 AWG)

Depending on current, you may also be able to get away with a thin stock terminal:

P/N: 12110842 for 3.0 - 2.0mm2 wire (12 AWG - 14 AWG)

Anyway, thought I'd post this since I had already looked it up. This may not apply if your terminals aren't tangless. Terminals with a tang will have different part numbers.

You may be able to find these at your GM dealer. The service guys should likely have a toolbox looking item with about 5 red trays of terminals inside. I've sourced some terminals similar to these from them.
