electrical components on firewall: 2016-06-28 Panasonic DMC-FT1
The electrical items mounted on the firewall. On the left aluminium angle bracket are: battery isolator, starter solenoid, fuse for starter warning light lead, ammeter shunt with associated fuses and 30A breaker. Underneath that assembly is the plate with a forest of blade connectors forming the common earth point for items forward of the firewall. It is bolted through the firewall to a similar plate with more tags for earthing items aft of the firewall. The small black box near the top centre is the manifold pressure sensor for the propeller controller. To the right of that is another aluminium angle bracket bearing the overvoltage crowbar and associated fuse, relay and circuit breakers. On the bottom right is the regulator for the alternator. Left of that, the blue cylinder is the 22000 microFarad capacitor and left of that again, the small bright item is the stainless steel firewall pass-through fitting which will carry all of the wires between engine compartment and cockpit (apart from the magneto leads).
