Default Stall Warning Switch

I'm just installing my stall warning switch, before installing the leading edge. It's not easy getting installed even with full access. I can't imagine removing it and re-installing through the access hole. Has anyone successfully done so after installing the wings.

I have it adjusted for minimal travel, like the manual instructs, but I'm wondering if I should give it a little breathing room in case things settle out and once the wings installed it's always on.

Removing through that access hole seems like a nightmare!

Or you could just leave it out entirely, as you most likely will have an AoA and won't need it.

On my -8, they are already cutting the holes in the leading edge skin, or I would have left it out too...

On a -7 that I recently flew, the stall warning was blaring from landing all through rollout until I was almost stopped. Perhaps with an A model, it may not continue going off on rollout, but I wound up pulling the breaker for the remainder of the flights.

Works fine on a tail dragger or a tri gear if it is adjusted and working (no excess friction in the vane, etc.) properly.
