One year the person who performed the annual on my 7 reinstalled a pair of the plug leads to the LSE on top reversed. This was the first time Iíd outsourced my annual.
Needless to say it ran like a chaff cutter when doing the run up. It ran tho even on two cyls and one ignition.
Interestingly I didnít suspect the obvious and ordered myself a new set of coils
When that didnít fix it I looked a bit closer and worked it out.
Iíd be curious as to how poor the run up here was on the offending ignition.
I assume that the good ignition was the one that came unplugged here leaving him a few cyls short?

That's spooky. Does anyone know of a good way to label plug leads to help prevent this?

Peeling this onion back layer by layer would lead one to believe the true root cause was a lack of design for maintainability.

It's a challenge to mount equipment in a manner which allows it to be accessible for maintenance, but not nearly as great a challenge as working on equipment which has been installed with disregard to its accessibility.

There's a lesson here for those of us who are builders...

I just bought a shrink tube printer--going to label every darn wire in the airplane.

I think thereís plenty here to digest and discussed in the interests of safety.
Dual crank trigger has also been debated here at length.
IMHO that dual PCB crank trigger and unprotected leads is a very poor design with an obvious catastrophic failure mode..
We had a terrible accident here from a broken alternator belt on takeoff.

Rumor had it that he had been having trouble with the engine from the get-go but decided to keep flying it
