Anyone know where to get this connector???

Looking for this 9 pin connector. It connects the engine sensors to the gauges thru the MMDC.

I would poke around Newark.com. I don't know if you'll find the exact connector, but probably something close enough if you're replacing both sides. The link below looks pretty close to the plug side.

I agree with Skram - poke around and find something where you'll replace both sides.

Getting the raw connectors sucks, unless you have the correct crimping tool to attach the wires to the contacts. An option is to get something like:
https://www.amazon.com/Deutsch-8-pin.../dp/B07G5LGWN4
(which is only 8 pins; maybe there's an unused pin in your connector) where that problem is taken care of and you can just do a butt connector.
Another suggestion:

I may have those since I did the MMDC delete, I will be at my garage this weekend and will look in my tool chest of fun for them.

I only need 8 pins. The big issue is the gauge wire that the connector has to accept. There are 2 10AWG wires and 6 12 or 14 AWG wires.

Most connectors I look at only take 18-22 AWG.

I think I am going to use butt slices and heat shrink tubing to put it back together.
