Landing Gear Switch

Post by Alan Evan Hanes »

My Falco has a non standard (wheel orientation is 90deg on lever, so it is perpendicular and looks awful) landing gear selector switch. I wish to replace this but am battling to find a suitable part that will not require me to pledge my mothers false teeth to a banker to buy it. Any ideas on the original part number, and where I might find an affordable one?

After much trial, tribulation and frustration I managed to find a switch and have machined a suitable aluminum "wheel" to go on the end in the correct orientation. The tap to cut a hole into the wheel is an unusual thread (3/8 x 32 UNEF) which cost a packet. Now to get it anodised white.
