CDU bay - base complete.
Will cover this with some metal i think.

Little help needed...

This lightplate is OLD!
What are the round stuff next to the bulbs?

I can measure 5V to the connector so it must be the bulbs that are broken.

This should just be to resolder with new o es right?

Looks like the clear coat has been melted a bit from the heat of the bulbs to me.

Or they put a protective coating there to help with corrosion to the bulb.

Yes Kurt, you should be fine to change the bulbs.  The part number is usually printed on the other side of the PCB

There is a protective coating, but the marks around the bulbs are from small self-adhesive foam rings that are normally there the seal light leaks around the bulb.  On anything with any age to it, these discs would have long crumbled away :)

Thanks! New bulbs will be ordered!

Will be a challange and i hope i not need to connect all 9x4 cables to read all the states of the digit displays.

Whole Freq on Nav 1 complete!
My Multimeter is epic! With this beast i can track down anything! Diodes? No problem! Hahah
Dont have the manual for the gables but now i know how they work by using the multimeter.

kurt-olsson

Nav panel completed and interfaced!

Moving on to the COMM panel.
This one shares the same bits for both frequencies so hopefully minimum cables for this panel.

Those older radios are a blast to interface! Helped a good friend with his 737 Transponder radio. Works like a charm.

kurt-olsson

Yep! They are a blast! Most fun in the sim for a long time!

Once you understand how the rotators work you can basically interface all the older panels in the same way.
