What is the red (molex-style?) connector inside the Hayward H100ID heater?

Does anybody know what connector this is inside a Hayward H100ID natural gas heater?

The included power cord is extremely short (~2 feet) and I need it at least another foot. I'd like to buy the correct (molex-style?) connector and make my own cable. (Hayward doesn't sell any replacements, I asked them)

I can't see the pic because it's hosted on imgur, but try looking on mouser, digikey, or allied electric for it. Mouser usually has a lot of filters to narrow down what you're looking for.

I updated the original post by uploading the image directly to the forum. Please let me know if you can see it?

I've searched Mouser and Molex and can't quite find the correct adapter. It measures 10mm x 23.75mm and has a 3.5mm pitch.

Here's a picture of the end of the connector. (sorry it's a bit blurry)

I'm just noticing now that one of the slots is keyed a bit different than the other 3.

Wow - thanks so much for finding it! However, that's the actual connector that I need to find (not the other end).

The Hayward heater electrical plug ends inside the heater with the connector I pictured. I need to replace the electrical cord with the same connector so it will connect with the other end inside the heater.

I think I need either TE Connectivity / AMP 172330-1 or TE Connectivity / AMP 172159-1? (and the correct pins/crimps of course)

EDIT: Here are pictures of the OTHER end that is inside the Hayward. This is the opposite end (that I don't need). It looks the same as the one you linked.

You are correct, I assumed that you needed the opposite end from what you pictured, so you're right you need the other end.
I think the 159 is the one you need, but either one should work.
