Update: it was the P lead - ordered a new one - and got it put in. Got the mag timed tonight - tidied up some of the conglomeration of wires that were strewn about. Found three wires that, at one point, led to the switch - but had been cut in years past and taped.
The OLD p lead had a butt splice - that’s where the failure was. I’m definitely glad I’m taking this opportunity to clean up some of the things that are never seen. Pulled the interior - redoing seat upholstery, headliner, and side panels while they’re out. Removed old insulation - pulled inspection panels below back seat - complied with SB208 while we were digging. Cleaned everything up - lubed what we could - shot some corrosion X in that area under the seat - shot some chromium phosphate on the cage for good measure. No corrosion found - what a great feeling. Waiting on new insulation from airtex which will be here Tuesday. Interior stuff should be done mid week - she’s gonna look sharp once it’s all said an done. Hopefully I can get her all buttoned up by next weekend - leaving for a couple of weeks and am supposed to fly her in for her annual on the 19th. If I can’t get it flying by the time I leave - I’ll have to reschedule my annual.
Taking it to weepnomore July 26th, then in for paint in October. Woohooo
