I sold a motorcycle and was able to buy some much-needed parts. The first is this Plane Power AL12-E160/C Alternator. This is the case mount unit since our engine doesn’t have the mounting boss. The parts look great!
The other big part of my order was the probe package for the Dynon D180. This is an expensive package, but it comes with lots of goodies. I was surprised to see that the package included a pre-wired, color-coded 37-pin D-sub connector for the EFIS items.
I’m using the Z13/8 electrical system designed by Bob Nuckolls. I started off my wiring with the leads that will make up the electrical system architecture.
I found one problem when I started to make the fuse links, which are very small wires connected to larger wires. Since splices are designed for the same size of wire, they wouldn’t do. Instead I used crimp-on “handshake” connectors, since they are available in different wire sizes. The whole finished product is not much bigger than a splice, and certainly as durable.
I have a few of the wires done now, with many more to go.
