When I wired my fuel pump to the unused nav light switch I wired the old fuel pump power to a cigarette lighter socket on the bracket that supports the ELT antenna. Itís handy for powering a portable ADS-B receiver that sits on my fuel tank top.

This is why I moved the wire from one side of the master solenoid to the other. Quick and easy change, if you want it powered only when the master is on.

Dale, What's involved with moving the wire from one side of the solenoid to the other? Can you identify the wire number?

B148, according to my drawing. There's an in-line fuse holder, so it's pretty easy to spot. The drawing shows it connected to the battery terminal. I really don't remember if mine was connected there or to the hot side of the master relay, but now it's on the switched side of the master. Ten minutes and a wrench or two, if you have the upper cowl off.

Thank you for the quick response. Very good instructions.
