Thanks, it will sit until the end of the week, under a big fan.

Yeah, aircraft mechanics with good tools splice aircraft wiring all the
time! Anybody else, I don't wanna know about it!

Anyway, I found out by searching pics on fleabay, the connector seems to be
a garden variety 4 post Molex connector. I will just order a package of the
connectors and the crimp-on pins and I should be good to go. Kudos to Sun
for not going out of their way to make parts impossible to find (although
that is not true for all their suppliers!)

Thanks to everyone for the comments.
