Just crumbled my wiring harness-to-distributor connector, now what?

I just ruined the wiring harness connector to my distributor. The interior of the female side coming from the harness disintegrated from age and heat. Now I have the female wire connectors flapping in the breeze. Finding a suitable connector to replace damaged one is not easy.

Can I hook up each wire to it's mate and maybe stuff the space around the wires with dielectric gel/grease to prevent shorts???

Any ideas??

Vehicle specific information would be helpful. Most connectors of this type you can get from your respective dealer. If not you can try your local higher end parts stores or a salvage yard. I wouldnt recommend just plugging the wires in singly. The connector has a lock that keeps it in place so that normal movement and engine vibration do not shake it loose.
Hope this helps ya,
