Coolant Temp Connector

Hello, I have a 1984 TA with a LG4 engine that I am fixing up. It has a broken temperature sensor connector (see pics) that I am wanting to replace but I've searched on here and google but can't seem to find it. It's on the thermostat housing and has a black and yellow wires coming out of it. I've seen similar ones but have one wire coming out of it and the center of it is male instead of female so it won't work. If I can't find this connector can I switch to a newer style 2 wire sensor that has the prongs side by side?

Thank you!


Current state

End of connector

Locking mechanism

Sensor/sendor

Get rid of it. It is THE DUNG. Always has been, always will.

SOOOOOPER EEEEEEEZY to put an end to that garbage once and for all.

Throw the Scothcloks in the trash. Use solder and heat shrink instead.

Great! I actually already have that connector because I thought that is the one I had until I went to replace it, I'll just have to buy the sensor. Thanks for your help!
