Brief Description: Auto pilot servo wire routing and pitch trim wire
Today was going to be more parking brake work but determined it would be better to get the springloaded knob first before making the bracket for it. This bracket will go on face of of valve assembly and will have position holes drilled so that the valve can be secured in open or locked positions. Ive put this off long enough and thought through how to route the autopilot servos harness. The previous way was just laid in and used the lightning holes. Did not like! After much thought, I repositioned the left side conduit closer to the floor brace just in the most forward bay. I then pulled the pitch servo wire bundle out. Drilled a couple of holes in the floor rails up near the center bulkhead. Inserted bushings and ran the harness back through to the two servos. I secured the end of the conduit to the floor brace and the exiting wire bundle was secured to the bottom of the aileron trim servo bracket with adel camp. I now only ned to attach the wire bundles to their plug assemblys and secure to the servos. Moving back to the tail, I routed the pitch trim wire bundle up thru the aft deck and inserted a rubber grommet. I know im on the opposite side from the trim tab but can simply adel clamp the wire to the deck and cross over. I need to decide how to proced on the trim tab servo. I might go under the rear HS spar since there is a 1/8inch gap and then thru the side of the elevator. More on this later. Driled and attached the ELT antena tip to the top of the rear HS spar flange.
