 YOU KHOW WHEN YOU START A PROJECT THEN LIFE GETS IN THE WAY?
 WELL, ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO I DECIDED TO REMOVE MY DUCELLIER ALTERNATOR AND GIVE IT A SPRUCE-UP.
 THIS WAS DULY COMPLETED AND PUT 'SOMEWHERE SAFE'!
 I'M NOW ABOUT TO RE-FIT, HOWEVER, THE L-SHAPED MALE SPADE TERMINAL ATTACHED TO THE B+ POST HAS GONE AWOL!
 THAT'S OK I THOUGHT, I'LL JUST BUY ANOTHER ONE - BIG MISTAKE!
 IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE WORLD HAS STOPPED MAKING NEARLY EVERY SIZE EXCEPT FOR 6.3MM.
 THE FEMALE COUNTERPART WOULD SUGGEST I NEED CIRCA 8MM.
 YES, I KNOW I COULD REPLACE IT WITH A RING TERMINAL BUT THAT'S TOO EASY.

 CAN ANYBODY HELP?  Huh?

Have you tried https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/? Might be worth giving them a ring or emailing with dimensions for the Spade that you need a connector for.

I had a similar problem when fitting a new headlamp to my Beta Coupe. In the end I was able to get some 8mm spades from Kayfast1 on ebay. They seemed to have pretty much every size and shape of spade terminal.
