A few words about pricing of the landing gear wiring harnesses. The micro switches used in these kits are a single-source item, Honeywell being the only supplier. Semi-annually they raise prices and those dollar-amount price increases I pass along to you. When the new inventory reflecting that increase hits the parts room and my current inventory is depleted, the first kit shipped with those newly-priced switches will be priced accordingly.
Piper’s pricing has been escalating too, although most likely they factor a mark-up which will continually make their prices escalate faster for an identical switch purchased from me.
The Landing gear wiring harness kit utilizing the rectangular-version micro switches are $1,059.00. Those models include all 180 / 250 / 400 / and twins through serial number 694. These kits include Teflon tubing; an option is cadmium-plated mounting brackets $195 assembled. EXCHANGE ONLY.
