Good morning to the list,
This is my first post.  I have a used Ten Tec transceiver with theModel 962 
power supply.  The power supply cable has 4 heavy wireswhich terminate at a 4 
pin Molex connector. When I put it on thetranceiver, it sort of "falls " on.  
In other words the female pins onthe 4 pin cable connector are loose.  Now it 
stands to reason thatthis is common but I don't want to draw high current like 
My question is should I extract the pins and replace them or is itnormally 
sufficient for high power to use the extractor to form themback a bit ?  Along 
with this question, can anyone recommend a sourcefor these Molex fittings?
Thanks in advance,
