    Thanks 8008guy, I think you got it right. I found these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/QTY-10-1-64...0AAOSwq7JT8Th0
    but how do I measure pitch? I dont want to just keep making purchases till I find one that fits. I was looking through what I had but most of these connectors are too large. Here is the connector on the board vs one I thought I could use from a MAcintosh LC power supply (that was too big, pins were a much larger gauge) Attachment 63637

    The ones linked are a pitch of .1" or 2.54mm so just measure the distance between two of your pins and see if they are about 2.5mm apart.

    If you can't find it, look at the spacing across 11 pins (pin to pin) should be about 1 inch. 6 pins should be about 1/2 inch.

    (25.4 mm = 1 inch).

    Oh, lateral thinking !

    Love it

    A simple rule in mm should suffice though if they are about 2 and a bit mm apart, they will be 0.1"

    Just trying to think locally. I have several tape measures and rulers and I don't think any of them has a metric scale.

    I rely on my mics calipers for that.

    Of course I see my micrometer all the time when I dont need it, and its not the in correct places... So Ruler it is! 20200924_124948_resized.jpg
    Hope this comes through. its just a hair over 2mm per pins and it looks pretty much dead on 1cm between pins one and three.
