MOLEX CONNECTOR ASSEMBLY
Solderless Contact Terminal Assembly using Molex Crimper
Refer to instructions in
Solderless Contact Terminal Assembly using Pliers
Strip each wire 5/32" for contact terminal (P/N 030-01107-0030). (The last two digits of
the contact terminal part number indicate the number of terminals furnished).
Tin the exposed conductor.
Using needle nose pliers, fold over each conductor tab in turn, onto the exposed con-
ductor. When both tabs have been folded, firmly press the tabs against the conductor.
Repeat step 3 for insulator tabs.
Apply a small amount of solder (using minimum heat) to the conductor/tab connection
to assure a good electromechanical joint.
Contact Insertion into Molex Connector Housing
After the contact terminals have been installed on the wiring harness, the contact ter-
minals can be inserted into the proper location in the connector housing (P/N 030-
01094-0053). The terminal cannot be inserted upside down. Be sure to push the ter-
minal all the way in, until a click can be felt or heard.
The self-locking feature can be tested by gently pulling on the wire.
Extraction of Contact from Molex Connector
Slip the flat narrow blade of a Molex contact ejector tool, HT-1884 (P/N 047-05009-
0001) under the contact on the mating side of the connector. By turning the connector
upside down one can see the blade slide into the stop.
When the ejector is slid into place, the locking key of the contact is raised, allowing the
contact to be removed by pulling moderately on the lead.
Neither the contact nor position is damaged by removing a contact; however, the con-
tact should be checked visually before reinstalling in connector, to be certain that
retaining tab "A" extends as shown (see
DME ANTENNA INSTALLATION
The antenna should be well removed from any projections, the engine(s), and propeller(s).
It should also be well removed from landing gear doors, access doors, or other openings
which will break the ground plane for the antenna.
The antenna should be mounted on a bottom surface of the aircraft and in a vertical position
when the aircraft is in level flight.
Avoid running other cables or wires near the antenna cable.
Avoid mounting the antenna within three (3) feet of the ADF sense antenna or any COMM
