Need a plug to make a harness

I need to make a quick disconnect harness for my underhood air compressor. I would like to simply find 2 plug ends that I can fit my10/12 gauge wire into... I do not want to do a bunch of splices or solder connections. Any ideas where to find such a thing? I don't think the chain stores have what I want.

Ive built alot of harness stuff in my time. Even though I am a newbie here I am a veteran in the corvette world. Use a Delphi Metri-Pack 2-Way Male /Female Connector 630 Series 10 ga 8" Pigtail. Its easy to soder or crimp and is rated at 46 amps. About $20 bucks

Thanks. I found them w/o the pig tail also. Just what I'm looking for. Do you have a good source or did you go the Ebay route?

You can use Ebay or Waytek. There are others but Ebay will be the easiest. I bought a master master metri pack set. Your Welcome!

So my plugs arrived today... no instructions of course. I also found I need a different style of crimper.
Is there a good, inexpensive place to buy a pair of Open Barrel crimpers? I ended up w/ the 10-12 gauge set.

I used regular automotive crimpers on mine. It takes a few minutes do one but it can be done. Just start rolling the ears in. Once you get them rolled in use the non insulated crimp to do the final set. If your afraid it's too lose hit it with a small amount of solder.

When you say "regular automotive crimpers" do you mean the ones for butt splicers etc. ?

Yep. It can be done. I've done Weatherpack and Tyco connectors with them. Just take your time. If you have a spare to practice with helps. NAPA should have them too if they are Weatherpacks.
