I have a wee collection of spiders taken from the connectors (I installed a Brodie harness back in the day), and they all "look" ok but have some evidence of some kind of oxidation coating, hard to tell with the original tin plating.
I posted the Sumitomo mating 6-way connector number somewhere.... iff'n anyone wants to go that route, you can put 6 slightly larger gauge wires into it, crimp on the terminals, then 6" away, crimp/solder them together with a 12 ga. wire and run it to a suitable ground location (with eye terminal of course). That will take that particular spider to its own ground. The Brodie harness was done this way, then all the 12 ga. wires connected to one long 10 ga. wire taken to battery ground..... way overdesign, but it worked. I personally would do S4, S6 and S7 and call it a day.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
