Default The 9 and 15 pin "D" connectors, etc.

My connectors (picked them up today) came with plastic backshells and they are long enough to support well beyound normal wicking. If you wick past them you probably have melted the connector insert and have splayed the pins. You should not have a problem unless you did not install the strain relief backshells - then wires will break. The only question is how long.

By the way there are two different Pictorial Pilots - I got the 3 1/8" size because that is the size of the hole I already have for the turn coordinator it is replacing. The other size is the smaller standard 2+something". The 3+ has an inclinometer the smaller one does not. They are both fine. I am also putting in the altitude hold system which is separate.
