How to fix Fuel Pump Harness clip

So i figured out my problem with the no start ...it was the wiring Harness clip to the fuel tank ...i guess a stick pulled on it and rip the female Clip part off that holds the plug together ...

my question is , what is the easiest way to PROPERLY fix this ? I thought a thin strip of crazy glue for a temp fix to hold together (as it needs to be right snug ) or get a new plug (female) and splice the wires? this would be more difficult as it would involve dropping the tank and fixing as you can get up in there


any advice is appreciated

a lil (black)mrgasket around the outside of the male end slide em together they will glue together pretty good..n stay water tight,,,.
when clips like that have broken on the ford i have used this method never had em come apart on their own again... and when u have to go in and take it apart a lil razor knife a couple slits and shell come back apart....
.
its hack but sometimes hack is the way when u dont wanna cut n splice n drop tank etc,,,,

my 2 pennys of what i have tried with sucess

Isn't super glue is water soluble now a days. I think the black goo would be the better choice.

why don't you guys think of the most simple direct and non screwing you later permanent patch fix . . . put a zip tie around the conector

You don't have to water proof it, it already is a weather tight type conector

so i ended up zap strapping them with two zap straps, with RTV on the male side and all is good...


but Aaron what are these clips you speak of , do the existing plugs , plug into the new ones and are basically like extension of the original plugs? or do i need to splice in the old wires out of existing plugs?

yes it would if the gas tank and skid were not there.....up that time to 3 hrs with tank drop and kilby skid plate drop.

if it were a plug that was completely accesible on both sides i agree i would do it properly...but its a bitch to get at the female end with the tank there

To explain a little further, each wire has a metal terminal crimped on the end. The plastic housing holds the metal terminal. You remove the metal terminal and wire from the plastic housing (usually a little barbed clip or something holding it) then buy a new plastic housing and insert the wire withrhe crimped on terminal into it. It is now just like factory.


This will involve dropping tank or what ever it takes to access the wires with some working room.
