Looking for a female socket hood connector screw. I lost one from my glideslope connector cable. It looks like the one in the photo.

Here's the Winchester website. If you send them a picture they may be able to provide the part number. Some of the larger electronics catalog places like Newark or Digi-Key handle Winchester connectors in their product line.

The alternative would be to contact the avionics manufacturer provided they still support that equipment.

Not sure what is missing, but you might be able to use a regular connector screw of the type used on DB type connectors for the missing part:

These screws are commonly used to secure two DB connectors together or to secure a DB connector to a panel.

Just look at the screw threads and lengths of the one you have and match it up with the specs on this one. You might be able to find gold-plated ones but I don't see the advantage of that. The regular ones are nickle-plated.

replace the pin. Pins and a pin tool will be quicker, easier
