note to whoever makes their own connector harness: you'll probably want to dremel a little bit of pin material off so the pins actually lock into the toyota connector housings. I noticed theres about 60-70 thou too much material on the top portion of the pin to lock in place. ummm i'll reply with a badly drawn diagram.

that's good to know. only two of mine pulled out ever....so I filled the connector with blue siliconed from behind and used super glue. Never had a real problem with them. Also helped make it more weatherproof.

I still have plenty of these pins leftover! like 366 to be exact.

If Loki is getting one of these plates, I'd be happy to check if they fit on the 323 gtx valve cover once its in chi-town.

Now that I have garage space, I don't mind taking stuff apart and confirming things.

the clips will hold them fine. there's a lockdown plate that prevents the tangs from lifting up. You can seal it with silly cone though.

[email protected] I'm sure the lock tab will hold the pins in fine. But since I'm making stuff to send out, I want it to be bulletproof. I was planning on wrapping some electrical tape around the wiring at the connector and filling with epoxy. that would not only bond everything in place, but would also create a weather seal. and also if one wire got pulled, it would spread the load across all 4. kind of a ghetto strain relief.

paul, no rush dude. I have several 1.6 harness to make. thanks though.

i'd be in for a 1.8 hold down bracket, but my mounting tabs are a little different then the one you have, mine are straight up from the connector, braineak, has a picture of it in his how2

I'd be interested in a mounting plate for the 1.8 COPs.. once I can get a set of coils scrounged up. Still working on that one.

Uhm, I might add that I'm not running a Miata cam cover, but it should fit all the same between miata and 323/Protoge/Escort covers I would think.

i wouldn't guarantee that. my miata's valve cover is nowhere near close to an early 1.8 and the COPs dont fit in my holes.

Hmm.. so maybe I should fight one battle at a time and get the coils rounded up and installed before I worry about a mounting solution.. Gotta do something cause right now my factory coil packs are just laying ontop of my intake manifold / injector cluster ****. I was more thinking the same along the lines of room for the mounting plate to go. I actually own all of those covers, the escort, 323/protoge, and more than one 1.8/1.6 miata covers.. If anyone wants some photos or measurements.
