Wiring Continues

Haven’t posted in a while but making steady progress.

Made a wiring harness for the TO/GA switch.

Wired up the canopy harness.

Relocated the GAD 27, GAD 29, and GEA 24.

 

Made up two of the four connectors for the GEA 24. Had to re-order the thermocouple wire for the EGT and CHT connections. I accidentally ordered solid wire instead of stranded. Connecting the engine to the airframe, there’s enough motion in those wires that I wasn’t comfortable using the solid wire. It probably would take long for it to work harden and break.

 

SO. MANY. WIRES!!!

So glad i borrowed Jared’s engine stand rotisserie. I can’t imagine doing this with the airframe upright.

Wired the radio stack

Made my first CAN Bus daisy chain termination for the GTR 200B com radio.

 

Finished wiring the COM radio connector.

 

Terminated the antenna cables with BNC connectors for the transponder and com radio and a TNC connector for the GPS.

 

Made up the connector for the GMC 507 autopilot control. Pretty simple… Power, Ground and CAN bus.

Installed the com radio tray and the transponder and GPS trays that I had pre-wired. I routed and tied all the wires.
