CANBUS and RS-232 connections ITT Cannon Sure-Seal connectors

Where can you buy ITT Cannon Sure-Seal Connectors?  The UL Power EMS has several of these connectors..  The RS-232 to EFIS/ULREAD needs a 120-8551-101 three pin female connector.  The CANBUS interface needs  a 120-8552-101 three pin male connector.

I've been able to find the ITT Cannon catalog, but where to buy one male, and one female connector is a bit challenging.   The factory solution appears to be part numbers E080303 for canbus and E080305 for RS-232.  53 Euro each.

Do you even need them?

I'm going to snip the RS-232 connector off and put in a Dsub-9 pin female connector.  That's just standard computer stuff.   Any USB-RS232 dongle will plug into that as long as you get pins 2 & 3 right. The cable with the canbus connector is too short to reach where my Garmin GAE-24 EIS Interface is located. 3 butt splices seems reasonable to me.

What has worked for you?

The only part you need is E080303 to connect your ULPower ECU CAN bus to your Garmin EIS.
There is no reason to cut of the factory connector when using the ULP supplied cable.

The RS232 is used to connect the ULRead diagnostic cable and when you cut the connector, the ULP cable doesn't fit anymore and you need to fabricate your own connector on it.

My advise is to leave the ULP connectors and buy the appropriate OEM cables, we have them in stock at Wheels and Wings, or you can order from Wicks.
