I think that's most likely the case, yeah.

...especially as yesterday, K7 did her occasional trick of sticking her fingers up at her own supposed history! :twisted: :twisted:

It's long been said that the main wiring loom had to be cut when the intakes were removed after the collapse in November 1966, but we now know that this is not the case. Yesterday Bill pulled a plastic pipe out of the stores, which is five feet long with an I/D of an inch; this was a trunk for the main loom and it fed the wires from back in the hull, under the main spar, and just into the back of the cockpit at F15, where there is then a large connector block from which the cockpit loom continues. We'd always assumed that the connector block was added during the big chop of '66, but now it's obvious that the main wiring always ran under the spar.

So how are we so sure? Because, the main loom is pretty thick and needed that inch bore pipe to run through- it physically couldn't have fit through the much smaller holes that passed through the tops of the formers for the intakes- one of those facts that was there all along, had we realised what we were looking at. There are some much smaller wires going up through there- and these will be the ones that were cut in '66- and the JPT wire and pitot pipes originally ran through there and were also rerouted under the spar, but the main loom ran underneath, and always did. :geek:

Checkie was duly informed of the existence of Trunkie, and we wish him well. :lol:
