You could try the Polevolt catalog:

But those connectors are similar to the denso injector plugs, so probably a Nippon-denso part.

Right apparently the connectors we are struggling with are water and air temp sensors, anyone know a supplier?
Worst comes to worst we will just swap out for a more modern sensor with a connection we can find

Progress we have now found a supplier for EvERY connector on the car bar one, we can\'t even find a name company or part number for it,
Can anyone help with this one it\'s for the idle speed control valve connector it\'s a 2 pin connector  and we cannot find it anywhere,
Anyone

Tried speaking to a rotary garage? Surely they\'ve got old looms hanging around the place?

Yeah, I can get old ones that I could clean up but I want all new as I will be selling a couple of looms also, have contacted rywire in the states, tripoint, lms-efi anyone who makes aftermarket looms and everyone has said they don\'t bother with that connector as it\'s too hard to find,

I can\'t leave it at that, they must be out there somewhere even if I have to buy 100 of them

Bad news, and I quote

Its not available.  It was made by Sumitomo but is proprietary to Mazda.  Similar to the ignitor connector.  Neither are in any Sumitomo catalog.  You can get the terminals and seals, but the hardshell is not available.

I have had the offer of getting a batch 3D printed though so bear with me!

Now that is a smart solution :-)
 
Is this for an FC or FD just out of interest?
 
I\'m building a new loom out as well, so may well be interested in purchasing the harder to find connectors (mine\'s an FC)

It is an FD but you will find that a lot of the connectors will be the same,
The vast majority are one type from one manufacturer it\'s only the things that haven\'t been made by mazda or a mazda endorsed company that are different, so your injectors, idle valve, air flow, knock sensor etc

When you get closer to needing the info mate drop us a message and I will see what I can identify
