[VHFcontesting] TE Power Connector for used 222 Amp purchase

I just purchased a used TE Systems 210G amplifer that arrived in good 
condition. Unfortunately, it's missing the "DC" power connection at the 
rear. I'm not even sure what those plugs are called, except that it's the 
square, four flat pin job that a lot of older TE amps have.

Ditto the 7 pin "tube" type socket for external keying.

I'd love to purchase both if anyone on the list has spares that they're 
willing to part with.

Or would it better to simply open it up and connect some heavy gauge wire 
directly to the motherboard for DC power, and likewise for external keying. 
I really like the TE Amps, but the use of non-standard connectors makes them 
a bit of a pain.

Any help appreciated, as always.
