Column Connectors

#1
I am currently in the wiring phase of the project after being away for a while. I thought I remembered a post somewhere about the column and connectors used. I am using a Ron Francis wiring harness but it came with a connector that is for the older style GM columns without the headlight switch and wipers. Has anyone been able to source the mating connectors (one is 23 pin, the other 6 pin)? Everywhere I look seems to just be the old style that only has turn signals, flashers and horn. My other option will be to cut the connectors off and install a generic connector on both sides.
Second question, does anyone have a wiring diagram for this column - really just need the pin outs for the connectors.

Thanks. With those two connector drawings, I was able to find the GM part number so I think I can get just the connector and pins and avoid having to make the splices. I was surprised there wasn't more availability from the standard wiring/column suppliers but I guess most just offer columns without the headlighs

Mike- can you share the GM part #?

Thanks!

Here is a chart for the metric wire size equivalents (needed when you buy the pins)

Does the steering column factory wiring come with the male or female 23 and 6 pin connectors? I'll delete the part numbers for the connectors that are used on the column to make it less confusing. I'll leave the "mating" connectors listed. I'm using the Cadillac XLR column so mine is different.
