Hello, can anyone help identify ford 5.4 fuel injector connector?

The vehicle is a 1997 for E150 with the 5.4 engine and the connectors are gray with latches on the outside edges, date of manufacture is 6 of 1996 so it is an early build.

This is an early build that has the metal not plastic upper intake manifold and plastic lower.

I am looking for an actual part number if possible.

Thanks

Are you looking for a Ford P/N, or hoping that this is a standard from some connector manufacturer? Injector connectors are fairly generic, but there are several different common injector designs over the years. Maybe posting a picture of an injector would help.

Thank you, I am looking for either, ford or manufacturer part number or even manufacture name.
I did find Ron Francis part number INJ-1 with wires $11 each, but I don't need wires.
The old connectors just don't stay latched on. e of the latches actually broke off, I possibly see a trip to the J yard after T day.

That is the original Bosch style injector, began in the early 1970s and very common. You can find a Bosch P/N easily, but will be pricey. The least expensive I saw, with a quick search, is this for $2.50 Note that it shows three pins because they provide a spare pin.


However, a JY may still be the quickest and most practical source. You may need the connector whole, with wires still attached, as it is often hard to extract contacts from a housing without damaging the parts.

thank you, is that connector an interchange or upgrade from the plastic two sided wing clip design ( I have) that broke off?

I like the solid wire clip design.
I will add another picture.
Also I have a good assortment of tools for terminal removal and connector rework and know very well to be careful when extracting.
These connectors have a secondary lock and an internal finger to hold the terminals in place.
Thanks again

The earliest ones I know of had the wire clip. I think the all-plastic retaining is a later design to reduce cost.

More pictures, of the one broken connector. the terminals did remove without internal breakage but the only way to reuse is some kind of tie system.
These connectors are weak in the way they latch and even when they are latched I can pull them off with little to no effort, ( without pressing the tabs)

I have a couple of MAP sensors with similar plastic (and broken) latches. Fortunately, the shape of the MAP connection is such that nylon cable-ties are easy and reliable to apply.
