breakout box for DME?

Anyone know of a breakout box and connector for the 5.2.2 DMEs?

I see some old OTC breakout boxes on fleabay, but most have ford connectors.

OTC 3226 -- for example.

Anyone know the adapter for the 5.5.2 DMEs?

Mike

Hi Mike-

Afraid you are between a rock and hard place on this one; most aftermarket break out boxes are not very vehicle specific, and the only one that we found works well on these cars is the factory unit, which is pricey and very hard to come by.

Thanks -- I think I have an old wiring harness -- but it might be from a 7. DME,

Woody is close by as well -- so maybe take a jaunt over there and build up one, or at least
a DME interposer board.

Was just hoping I could be a little lazier.
