I recently posted on the for sale discussion about the connector and pins which I found. Part number 91161288400. The absolutely best part I have bought to date. This forum has allowed me to resurrect my 82 931 from a ten year rest. I have chased erratic running and total fail for a few years. Bought two used ditc units which cured non running for a while. New and used ignition modules which helped sporadically. Improved grounds etc. If you read the initial post on the for sale site it started with me opening the connector and seeing that I had less than stellar connections. I do not know how to post pictures of the connectors and wires but they were toast. The problem was acerbated by the housing crumbling at the base where the connector mated to the DITC unit. There were cracks in the pin which would have been held in place with a pristine housing. Since replacing the connector I have been running the original ditc unit flawlessly. I did cut the harness to the connector which I then solder back together. I would heartily recommend that anyone with ditc and running issues open and inspect that connector and itís body. Since I did this I cannot believe the improvement in the performance of the car. I did wait till I drove the car on some longer trips before writing this. Iíve been burned too many times. I hope this helps.

Wow - great find, excellent work!!!

I've been maybe a touch luckier with mine; while the connector body is a bit cracked, it's still apparently functional, and I was able to resolder the pins on. Like yours, my ground and power leads were a bit marginal - the ground lead in particular was hanging by only a couple of strands of copper.
