Instrument panel


I am using the altitude encoder in the Stratomaster to provide an altitude reading to the transponder.  Here the Stratomaster is displaying 23,500 feet and the transponder is reading the same.  This means I managed to wire the transponder correctly.

Used a medical lift from Craigslist to mount the engine. P1030058


I had to lift the engine crate onto cinder blocks to get the legs of the hoist underneath.  I was doing some serious head-scratching before I came up with this simple solution.
