In taking apart my transmission I found that all of the lock wire is made of brass. It makes sense that if it breaks it may do less damage compared to steel. Are there any recommendations either way on this subject?
Brass is the only way to go inside the engine.
If steel is used and any breaks loose it can be picked up by the magnets in the magneto and short the mag coils.
The locations for brass wire would be wiring the crank flange bolts, and the the drive plate bolts on the transmission.
Use aircraft wire, it is SS. Dan
I always use SS wire, since it's strong, non-magnetic, and I have it readily available. I suppose brass would be easier on the triple gears if some should get in there.
