I am looking for two fittings (similiar to one in photo) for a pin connection to correct the connections on my Fiat loop antenna.

Dan,

Can you provide a dimension between the two Bakelite separators by measuring your loop?

Also the drill size opening that the screw that hold the terminals, use the shank of a drill, a number drill or fractional, whatever shank fits snug.

Are there any parts left on your loop that you can take a picture of, in place?

Did you find the end of the loop.

I have a box of these old school lab terminals, maybe a couple will fit?

>> Can someone post a better, sharper image of the Fiat terminals?

Chas

Chas - wiring ends at outside screws (see photo). The gap in the bakelite separators is .560 on one side and .606 on the other, they are slightly bent inward. Proper gap is probably 5/8. Screws check .125 diameter.
