I've retrofitted the pencil plugs. You really only need the plugs in my opinion. You can buy the wire and connectors and make your own jumper wires.

the 77 I picked up was upgraded to this kit and the person who was selling the car didnt realize it and bought the loop styles to get the car going to sell it. I was able to get the car to my shop by starting fluid( bad idea).

The pencil plugs are far superior to the loop plugs. The crucial difference is that there is no grounding wire for the pencil plugs. Keep the pencil plugs.

Let me ask again.

What is the part number for the pencil style retrofit plug?

I had come up with these numbers in my searches.

0 250 001 016
0 250 201 039
0 250 201 044

Are these correct?
Are any of these not the pencil style retrofit?
