Default WH-00125

Would anyone know if the mating connector that connects to the stick base connector is included with the WH-00125 harness? The connector I am looking for attaches to the wires coming out of the stick and what would plug into the WH-00125 harness.
If it's not included would anyone know the part number?
Thanks

Default Molex Connector

The connector you would need for the stick wires that mate with the WH-00125 is a Molex 43025-1200

The connector on the harness is a Molex 43020-1200

The harness WH-00125 does have the connectors on it for the sticks but it is nearly impossible to get them from the center tunnel out to the stick bases.

I've recently got the main fuselage harness from Stein.

It seems the connectors won't thread through the SB-750 grommets or even the holes for the grommets.
There's no mention of de-pinning the connectors to install the wiring and re-pinning when in place.

I can't see an alternative even with splitting the grommets. Is that how people have got there's installed?

I enlarged the holes using a dremel bit and alternated with a small file; a tedious process but eventually the holes were large enough to pass a connector through.

I initially attempted depinning them, but ultimately ended up with DB9's.

I followed the directions on the wiring diagram available on Van's website.

https://www.vansaircraft.com/wp-cont...1/WH-00125.pdf

It has you file a notch in the pass throughs to get the molex connector through without depinning. It was a bit tedious but did work.

I found it to be very frustrating to try to route the stick wires into position without removing the molex plug. So, I cut off the plug and Steinair provided a small extension, complete with the correct molex plug. After easily routing the bare wires, I connected the extension to the cut wires using d-sub connectors enclosed in heat shrink. Much easier!

Thanks Brian,

I'd missed that tip on the big drawing. It is rather cumbersome to scroll through!
Better placed on the section 55 printed diagrams.

But after an age of manipulating files to widen the notches, I finally got the left side stick wiring in. Not looking forward to the right side, but it should go a bit quicker!
