Brief Description:  WigWag wiring-1

Lots of time spent getting the wiring on the wig wag switch and flasher almost done.

I first had to re route the landing light wire which required removing the spiral wrap on several bundles and then fishing the wire out and then reinstalling so that it meets up with taxi wire Before it reaches the switch console. This is under the right lower consle.

I cut the taxi and landing light wires and labled and connectorized them

Installed a power supply 14awg from the front power posts and ran down to same area for the 12v cig power port.

Installed power supply 14awg from the power side (copper buss bar) of the console switch cb's, installed an inline 10amp fuse and fished the wire down with the other under the lower console.

I then figured out what all 6 lugs on the wigwag switch are to as well as the 3 lugs on the flasher module and just wrote on the underside in pen. I then made the wire connections from module to switch and to ground as instructed from B and C aircraft dwg.

Need to be able to remove this lower console shelf for access to wing spar bolts so I decided to connect the lamps and power and wire runs from the wigwag switch to the console switchs by using molex connectors. The power for the flasher and the power port will use a simple 2 wire molex and the wigwag will have a 4 wire molex. I connectorized both and now will need to cut off the wire connectors i installed from lamps and replace with molex pins.

The plan shows a seperate power supply to the flasher unit from that used for the lights. If I understand correctly, this will allow me to just flip wigwag swith on and the lights will activate and flash. This would be nice during day time landings if/when desired. At night, I can turn on the landing and taxi lights via the switch cb on rt console and then when needed, flip the wig wag and they will start flashing on landing. WeWill see if this works or not.
