This is hard! Does anyone have a good methodology?

Are you using cannon plug pliers? If not, that's the trick.

About any aircraft supply company will carry them. Probably can be found on E-Bay, too.

If you are removing the plug from the receptacle then the cannon plug pliers will do the trick, however if you are taking the plug apart then you will need a slotted screw driver and a pin extractor. The extractor will remove the wires from the plug. But I would start with dismantling the back shell first then the screws then the pin extractor and wires.

I tried a slotted screw driver, but it tended either chip the bakelite mat'l or the leverage tended to pop the cannon plug out of my control.

As far as the pin extractor, where can I find one of those.

Thanks,

If it has a bakelite center, it will most likely not have removable pins. They are probably going to be solder type conections under the backshell. If it has a rubber type center, then it might have crimp pins and you will need the appropiate feather to release or insert the pins.

A general guide is if the connector came out of something prior to the late 60's production, it will most likely be a solder type. After that time period, alll bets are off. The stuff that I work on has both solder and crimp type connectors and unless you know the connector coding or have been into that particular install before, you can't tell what type of pins are in the body.

BTW, if you are going to be working on crimp pins, be extremely careful about buying used crimp tools and dies. They do wear out and the differences between a good die and a worn out one are very tiny.
