Wiring the voltage regulator

I started wiring the voltage regulator today.  I had to shorten the shield and install new crimp leads on the two wires coming from the generator.


Lookin like a Gyro now!

My kit is looking more like a Gyroplane everyday.  Will really be excited when I can get the cabin and seat back from repair.


Panel wiring

I’ve nearly completed the wiring of the instrument panel.  Plan to do a 100% pin by pin ring test of all connections.  Ordered several yellow #6 hole crimp lugs that I will use to tie the panel ground to a common point.  The ground for the engine monitoring display will be tied back to engine ground.  Wiring included connecting all of the wires to the panel side and engine side connectors and pulling in the main wiring harness.


Parts go on

I got the landing gear installed, drag links adjusted and disc brakes in place.  Had to cut one of the hydraulic brake mounting bolts as it was to long and was barely hitting the brake rotor on one side.


Exhaust and propeller

I set the pitch on the prop and installed it.  Had to cut a small board at an 11 degree angle and use it to set the pitch.  This prop did not come with a pitch setting guide like some I’ve seen.

Then I installed the exhaust system.  I had some trouble lining up one of the exhaust tubes but finally got everything lined up flange bolts torqued and the springs installed.  Now I need to safety wire the springs.  I’m waiting on some smaller braided sleeving so that I can finish the engine and rotor rpm wiring.
