Fuel sender plug/fitting

I'm hoping this is a rather straightforward question. After upgrading my 300tdi to a plastic tank and appropriate sender I need to find the appropriate female plug to wire into my loom that plugs into the sender.
Does anyone know if this style plug is used on any North American models, or what it's actually called so I can try and order one somewhere?

Thanks in advance

Will

Looks same as '96 4.0 D1.

Check the wiring diagrams to confirm they match. If not, think your best option would be to get a 6" pigtail from a breakers in the UK.

I was kind of thinking there might be a remote possibility a D1/D2 might be the same... maybe someone will know.

If not any suggestions of a non-shady breaker who would be willing to ship such a small item to Canada?

Hi Will,
I think its this: 174257-2 | TE Connectivity Econoseal J Mk II+ Series, 4 Way 2 Row Plug Housing, Plug Housing | TE Connectivity

The connections used on later vehicles are typically AMP econoseal or Tyco plugs and sockets

USA: TE Connectivity - 174257-2 - 4 way Econoseal J Mk II plug housing - Allied Electronics

regards all
Gren

So what are you doing to get the correct wire leads & fittings for the Econoseal socket?

My concern is for if/when the leads could possibly rust out & need replacing.

That remains to be seen. I'll post back up once I've figured something out.
