Tanya & Bryan Duke's RV-6 Panel Rebuild
04 Aug 05: Today was more sensor & wiring work. I pulled the panel between the seats that hides the flap
servo. It doesn't have a position sensor, so I'll have to install one of the Ray Allen position sensors
to get flap position to the engine monitor. It seems kinda funny putting a sensor on something I can see
easily out the window. Cool points.
For the new nav mode switch for the autopilot, I needed to wire the EFIS for its serial output. Two new wires &
itty-bitty soldering work later, the EFIS is ready to wire to the nav mode selector.
I also mounted the manifold pressure sensor today, but somehow I forgot to take a photo of it.
Instead of building a bracket to hold it, I just bolted it to
the mount for the AF2500's Analog Module. I'll remove the old manifold pressure firewall fitting & install a hose
fitting to connect it up.
