    Hello ALL.
    I am new to your forum! I hope I'm in the correct department?
    Here goes. Attached is a schematic for "Cowl Flaps" on an airplane. If you look at the CIRCLED DPDT(?) switches, I'd like to change this to two Micro switches (as ON-ON )?? As you go through the diagram from the CIRCLED DPDT switches you'll see two micro switches (these are limit or stop switches). View attachment Cowl flap circuit c3370001.pdf
    That said does anyone/everyone think it can be done?? Also I'm fairly smart with electrical wiring, but I have to admit these three terminal micro switches have me a bit stumped!!
    Thanks for looking!

    The three terminals on a micro-switch should be marked as C, NC and NO. If they are not marked, it is easy to figure out using a meter. If you don't know how to do that, I wouldn't want to fly in the airplane you are working on. I know it sounds harsh, but it sure sounds like a major safety issue to modify cowl flaps on an airplane.

    I just cannot answer this post. Too much can go wrong with this.

    We don't let automotive mods on here. This can kill many more people.

    Indeed. The terms of service don't explicitly restrict aircraft topics, but common logic dictates that any concern for automotive dangers is tenfold for aircraft.

    Please consult a verified technician.
