Daag44, the text of your apparently since-deleted email questioning my judgement was received in an email notification for new posts to this thread.
I went to my (large/well-known) Doo dealer for an equivalent crimp: dead-end.
I then posted here, and appreciate your engagement to help find an OEM equivalent, but nobody provided the hoped-for response-
ie: "I found the OEM-quality replacement you're looking for, it's P/N XXX at Acme Corp that I installed 5YR ago and no issues".
Apparently a topic without a large body of knowledge/experience in DooTalk Land -no problem with that.
Apologies, but no confidence that searching websites and ordering parts with no specific DooTalk recommendation guarantees an OEM-quality replacement.
Next stop was the garage that repairs my cars, and they sent me to NAPA saying they had a big selection of quality stuff.
An older and apparently very knowledgeable guy at NAPA strongly recommended the part that I bought, and assured me it was perfectly fine for this application.
I want to do things right, but don't have the base of knowledge you and others on this forum have. Therefore I rely on advice from the experts on these topics.
I certainly did want the OEM-quality replacement, based on a goal of doing things right (not on knowledge of crimps). Obviously, I tried.
I accepted the recommendation of the NAPA guy because the part appears very robust and of good quality.
Stealth Bomber then offered his opinion that this part will work fine, and that was good enough for me.
I didn't find the OEM replacement, but don't think the compromise is "going backwards" far enough to be questionable as an adequate replacement(?)
Any further perspective always welcome, and thanks again.
