I'm doing some spring cleaning and found all these unfamiliar connectors.

I believe that the fuse looking connecter is related to car antennas, but would like to verify that.

The chassis mount connectors are made by cinch and each size has 4 sub types (different pin blanked off). The large ones have 7 functional connections and the smaller ones 5. I have no plugs for any of these, so they aren't particularly useful to me.

Does anyone know their designation or where to find plugs? Otherwise these will end up in the classified soon enough.

Thanks
Ian

The chassis mount cinch connectors are made for can type electrolytic capacitors to plug into. Made changing filter caps a lot easier.

The first connector looks like a noise suppression resistor that would plug onto the top of a spark plug.

The connector in the first picture is a spark plug noise suppressor. If you check it with an ohmmeter it will show several kilohms resistance. They were used to reduce ignition noise in auto radios before the advent of resistance core plug wires. Harry
