Card edge connector

My 1999 Pace Arrow's propane water heater control unit has a 6 wire card edge connector that needs rewired.
To accomplish this I need to source 4 new connector pins but I can't find a source.

Any known resources?

If your just wanting the pins, here’s 3 sources -

DigiKey
Mouser
Allied Radio

Crimping those pins isn’t easy without the right tool - you would probably be better off buying a harness.

Looks like that is your source. Is there a reason you can't order from Digi-Key? You're unlikely to be able to find them locally to you.

If your connectors have just lost their arch, you can re-arch them with a dental pick. It's a failure that has sold many circuit boards to unknowing customers..

Indeed but I do have the appropriate crimping tool.

And it would appear you have the wherewithal to remove those pins from the strip.
Good luck and let us know how it went.

Thumbs up Digi-Key

Gotta love Digi-Key! Back when I worked, we could order in the afternoon and 7 out of 10 times it was at the workplace the next morning... crossing the border too! Truly amazing service and decent prices.

Absolutely! I'll keep these guys in my contact list for sure.

This was only $12 worth of parts, shipped across the continent and up into Canada with a week. That's some great service!

Another one to put in your list is Monoprice. Back when i was doing computer networking they were our primary vendor - if we had an order in my noon and paid for fedex it would be at the job site by 10am the next day.
They got started in networks, they now do appliances and audio/video/home theater.
