Electrical connection for Jabsco water pump

I replaced the wiring to my water pump (Jabsco 36950-1000). Problem is that the pressure switch has tiny little spade terminals - too small for standard spade females, and too small in general, in my opinion.

Several vendors offer a "Jabsco pressure switch conversion kit"

http://www.jamestowndistributors.com...t.do?pid=17314

Description says "Jabsco conversion pressure switch kit converts old style pumps to new 2 screw style. It is designed for use with 36950 series water pumps." Sounds like just what I need, but the photo isn't clear. Anyone have experience with this kit? Barring that, any advice regarding making good connections to the the tiny terminals?

The small spade crimp terminals are fairly easy to use.

Re: Electrical connection for Jabsco water pump

There are three widths for Faston terminals. These are the "standard" 0.250" width, the 0.187" width and the 0.110" width. The other dimension that must be matched is the blade thickness. Most Faston terminals are offered in two thicknesses.

Another requirement that must be matched is the terminal to wire gauge.

The last requirement is the terminal to crimp tool.

Then it is easy...

Any suggestions where to find the smaller terminals? Genuine deals doesn't seem to carry them, nor does West Marine.

Re: Electrical connection for Jabsco water pump

Goto one of the major electrical suppliers, Platt, stone way or Graybar. I'm sure you can find some their. Even Tacoma Screw carries a good selection.

Depending on where you are you might want to try Fastenall they tend to stock alot of terminals and have a lot of locations.
