Default What is this part?

Looks like an electrical connector to me, but the description makes no sense. ES-00313 "Round Tongue Stud #8 Screw Size"
A search of the electronic plans turned up nothing. :/

Sure looks like a Molex connector shell to me.

It is a Molex connector shell and I think it’s for your autopilot servo’s. Been awhile.

Dave12 is right. It is used on the autopilot servos, at least on the Pre-iS ULS. The iS could have other uses for it, I suppose.

It’s a pivot-framus valve. It goes on the end of the wobbelator shaft right under the flux capacitor.��

That application is only approved for tail-draggers. This is the -12 forum.

You have it confused with the gonculator. Easy to do.

No, that's not gonculator. This is a gonculator!
