    Does anyone know where I can get a pin tool to make my job alot easier. Ive been to advanced and auto zone. They dont have them. I also tried sears. Iam going to call honda since in the helms manual they have a part number for it.

    Iam using a sewing neddle right now which isnt cutting it. Iam pulling more wires then pins and then having to remove the pin its getting to be time consuming. Sorta a rant sorry but if anyone has more ideas please help me. Thanks in advance. :)

    HASport.com sells them... you might have to browse their online store to find it, but I know it is there.. call them if you have too.

    do you know that the plugs have a panel that snaps off and once you do that, the plugs should just come right out.

    You still need to have a pin remover.

    I use a paper clip, but you can buy what you're looking for at www.snapon.com

    You need pins?

    What kind? OBD1? If so, I got those. Let me know how many you need and which size (small / large)

    I have all ECU pins, '85-present. If you will bear with me being slack + taking 3-4 days to drop some in an envelope and mail, I'll kick you some free.

    I seem to have about 192747638282 spare OBD2 D plugs... I may have missed one or two when counting, btw. Seems like I'm always building some odd-ass conversion harness for OBD2B EMS into OBD1 car.

    I opened up my spare harness plugs and gave a good yank. I musta yanked 15, and only ripped out one wire.

    I have one now. The hasport one works great. :lol: you think its possiable that honda the dealership might have the pins for sale? I need some for obd0 pr3. Iam trying to rewire a main harness that someone hacked for some stupid reason. Its becoming a nightmare because ive only cleared 5 out of 4 codes. Still stuck trying to fix code 9 and 6.

    There might be a removal tool. I tried prying just right with a teenie screwdriver, didn't help. I swift yank seems to work best. Keep in mind, spare harness, not my own.
