PRO Tip: Deutsch Connectors

 
Klause's Avatar Oct 22, 2020 | 21:00 1 Meeting up with a member on here today reminded me about this info. Y'all might find usefull.


I fix a lot of these, usually when the housing is broken. The easy fix is 10 minutes with a heat gun and the plug seperates.

Replace the housing and reassemble. Everything has index pins so it can only go together one way.

If you keep things warm they will stick.

Otherwise industrial hot glue, contact cement, or super glue.

To remove a pin, insert the tool straight in from the back, around the wire. Push till it stops. Then pull back on BOTH the wire and the tool at the same time.


If it doesn't come out, pull the tool out, turn it slightly and try the procedure again. Reply With Quote

    Oct 23, 2020 | 09:37 4 Bought a used FC 1720 cart from a large dealer this spring. Three monitor boxes. Well which one came from this cart|? Not the one I got. Took a while to figure out that the pins were in different positions but I did figure it out eventually. The cheap plastic tools for switching the pins are useless. Need the ones Klause pictured which a local repair shop had. Problem solved and the cart worked good for a 27 yr old unit. Reply With Quote

    27yr old unit... Come on, you're making me feel "progressive" with my 24 year, soon to be 25 year old unit... It's still the main unit. Puts seeds and fert into the ground as good as I need it to. Reply With Quote

Said it was too old and I thought then you are of no value either. Yield and moisture monitor on my 10 year newer combine is less accurate and more erratic than the former. What value is bad data?
