I don't think either of these is "wide".

I can't conveniently get at the back of the machine right now, but I pulled
out both of my other 2940s, and the 2940uw is apparently a "wide" connector,
and fastens with screws, while the other (non-"uw") 2940 has a couple of
latches on either and of the connector, and is definitely smaller.

Probably. I just took a look at it and there are no screw fastenings there
either. Only thing I can tell you for sure is that it's smaller than the one
on the 2940. Honda 50? That's not a designation for a connector that I've
ever bumped into before. Google is finding me some pictures, though...

Are you mixing wide and narrow stuff there?
