I don't have any TE amplifiers, but it sounds as though you are describing a Jones plug (probably a P-304AB) mounted to the amp chassis. If so, the mating connector is a Jones S-304CCT, which is readily available AFAIK. (The "AB"ending means chassis or panel mount, and the "CCT" ending means a cable termination.) There is a larger series (the 400 series), but I've seen only the two-pin versions of those used as power connectors.

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.
