since bendix make complete systems ( acording to thier site) the connectors are probably amphenol, so you can try locating it here :
http://www.amphenol-aerospace.com/sl100viewer.asp

amphenol plugs can be found all over the world.

Well, I got mine out of the stick.  I remember there's a retention ring in there like the base has.  It's been a while since I took mine out.

I figured that when you attached the stick to the base with the retention nut, this was all the physical interface you needed to allow the SSC to function with the LVDT's.  This, however, was an assumption on my part.

Jay

I looked for a retention ring ... but wasn't able to find it .... but i found the retention pin on the lower back of the stick ..... but either removing that pin nothing happens else that the connector is free to turn ..... will try to have a better look !

Well .... dunno Jay ..... my stick doesn't move ... so probably the base is an old block 5 ..... but i tryed to understand how to transmit force to the lvdt.... .... if the stick is attached to the base trough the retention nut ....
is that the only one phisical interface needed ??? but heard that some bases allow the stick to move some inches .....damn ... i'd like to see the top of one of those newer bases .....

Thanks for the reference number for the connector .... is that the PN for the block 52 stick ???
If yes will try to send to my old pale ..... to see if it happens to find some of them !

Cheers

Ok ...
here another update !

TWP

All lamps wired .... and ... COMMON POSITIVE !

For the guys having a real TWP ... I think it's better to rewire all the assy !!
Pins for the switch are linked to the lamps with a resistor .... i don't know anything about that ... but for sure the switch internally changes the polarity for the lamp's pins ....

The indicator had 5 pins for lamps .... the middle one is the common (so + ) the external are shorted togheter .... the interna too .....

5   4        2    1  
          3

and 6 pins for the switch (usually pin 3 and 6 are shorted)

1        2
3        4
5        6

When i tryed to hook that way some indicator i found that i was able to light up the lamp only giving current to the outer or inner pins ..... then I shorted the right most right with the first pin for lighting with the 2 pin of the switch (with + 12 V) the negative to pin number 6 of the lighting ....
Then it came back all normal !!!!

Pins 2 and 4 are for the switch

here some pictures of the indicators lighted !

Beautiful new toy Davide!  What a great project!  It's amazing how many Airforce class Pit projects we're starting to see on the board.

nah, looks like the pilot tried too hard to make a immelman and finished rolling the trainer on the canopy  :lol:

Now if I were to put that in the bedroom, I'd definitely be single  :lol:
great parts Davide

Have a bandit day

Are you sure that the previous owner's wife didn't just loose it because he was flying too much and she decided to have at him with a rolling pin?  :twisted:

Naw, it's just realistic battle damage simulation.  You should see the other guy!

Good job making it home in a damaged jet Davide!  :beer:

Here some explanations ....

@Jody
Het Mate ... are you gelous ?? eh eh eh .... nope ... the trainer didn't take fire .... (at least since i will place wired panels there ! LOL) ....

@Hollywood & Armitage
Well ... the canopy is not from the trainer ... it's coming from a Belgian Mishap FA-93 in wich the unlucky pilot lost his life ....

@Idekkers
The trainer was almost empty .... i buyed the left and right aux consolle when it was somewhere else ... then i had the chance to put my hands on it .... and with some sacrifice i was able to acquire it !
Actual Stage for all my project is
Missing Parts:
DTU
FUEL QUANTITY INDICATOR
DED & PFD
So the GREAT HUNT for PARTS is almost ended !!!
