	ok, i checked them out tonight.  the spades indeed sit

	one end goes right into the firewal and presumably to 
	the ecu. there's a black sheath around this pair.  on
	the sensor end of the plug the wires are yellow and i
	think black.  they snake down and connect to something 
	relating to the fuel system, there's a rubber housing 
	that they go into, that sort of hooks into hoses or
	something behind the fuel distributor.  the sheath on
	this pair is grey.  anyway... the wires in the spade
	are just barely hanging on, and i really need new spades,
	and i don't mind purchasing the whole plug anew, or
	even using a different plug entirely.  i'm looking for
	suggestions on 1) where to get the right kind of 
	spades; i'd like some spares on hand and 2) what plug
	part this is so i can try to find a replacement.
