They came with two types of connector. A few of the older one has 4 pins. Good luck in finding any of those. Most have 5 pins and are the same as the rest of the Fisher -X series except the 1260x which is different. Be very careful with eBay definitions I have seen second hand coil listed as fitting both the 1266x and 1260x which is not the case. The plugs are different and even if you change the plug it will not work as they are completely different.

I use an almost identical machine. The 1265x with an 8" coil. I had never felt the need to go any larger. I don't feel the need to change. It is brilliant in these dry condition however does struggle on waterlogged fields.
