Question REPLACEMENT Ford plug in

I need the electrical connector that comes from the bus and goes to all the head lights etc .. Ford says no way. Anyone confronted this. If i had to i could just do away with it. I hate to do that with 16 wires.

you could also connectorize the 16 wires yourself by use of weatherpack connectors.. I create my own idiot-proof wiring connections by mixing and matching connector types and male / female so that I can only plug it in one way..

for my transmission wiring I had 9 wires.. so on the trans harness I used a 4 pin male barrell style and a 4 pin male inline, and a 3 pin male (with one wire inserted.. 2 empty).. it only plugs in one way and can still be unplugged if needed

OK guys. I chose the right 3 wires to cut abovethe plug and connected to the 3 correct below. THE LIGHTS WORK!! At 1st they didn't .I looked at it again after i started the bus. The high beam light was on. I clicked the dimmer floor switch and it went off and i have headlights. Don't know if high or low? Any idease?
Thanks
