    Go to any quality electronic store. Not Radio Shack! If your out in the boonies search the net. Got mine locally for $35 bucks they work great!

          i use long nose pliers, and in 12 years, i've never had a plug burn out, so i don't know where you got your theory on that causing the plugs to burn out, if done right and neatly, there as good as a crimper, i solder every pin as well, just for that added security
          i don't need mods, i am a bloody genius

              Here is where everyone will get upset with me. Attention 82-70 mechanics. All C-1 and C-2A terminal pins and socket should be crimped with the proper AMP crimping tool. Poor connections lead to early failure of terminal blocks, motor switches, and motor cabling. Every terminal made by AMP has a proper crimper, none of which are needle nose. All of the centers that I service have these tools and use them to perform expert repairs. I can provide all of the different crimpers any that are needed at fair prices. The crimper that Vantage sells for $222.75 I would be happy to sell it to you for $149 new. Just let me know by email and mention Bowl-Tech for the price.

                    Hey Guys,

                    I'm a strong believer in the right tool as well as quality. However, having the right quality tool for the job dosen't have to break your wallet. Although, some of my tools have put a dent in it. (That's because I just gotta have it, just because!)

                    The most expensive, doesn’t always mean the best. Vantage AMP crimpers are sweet, but even at $149 it’s way to high for what it does. You can get a hydrolic industrial for $4,820. But I think that only gibh could afford that kind of cash...LOL.

                    I can get just as good a crimp with my Klein open barrel crimpers (that have never had a terminal come loose yet!) as the Vantage AMP. The way they are designed, you get a lot of leverage and for $114 less. Yeah, I know I spent $10 more than Coors. Didn't have time to shop around.

                    Frosty, since your out in the boonies try Techni-Tool 1-800-832-4866. They have a lot of brand name precision tools and toys out there. There web site is http//www.techni-tool.com. They got one of those wishing caltalogs. Most of their tools are expensive but not outrageous. They carry AMP, Klein, Ideal, Xcelite and many other brand name tools. They have the AMP brand crimping tool to do the job for $21 but its the standard design. For $28 they have a sargent brand (never heard of it ,but doesn't mean it's bad). It has a better design than standard and will give you that extra leverage.

                      Wouldn't ya think the great Gods at AMF
                      could have designed a "beefier' connection than that dinky pin to handle the voltage to the motors,etc. in the C1 plug ?????. happens.only in America !!

                      (look at the size of the prongs on a plug for a 7.5 watt nightlite !!!!!go figure !!)

                        Being an unspoiled mechanic for years...i always did C1 & C2 crimping with needlenose pliers as many of you all mentioned. And when I came across my $25 pair of crimpers several years ago I thought this is sweet.

                        well today I went to a neighboring bowling center to fix a chassis problem because their mechanic is on vacation for the holidays. the mechanic at this center has one of the $200 deals...and OH MY GOD...is using the proper tool sweet. replaced 69 endings...(three C1 plugs worth)...and was kind of disapointed that i was done...lol

                        i still stick by the fact that you can get by with a common pair...but using the AMP crimper was a wet dream.

                        guess i learn somethin new everyday
