I like the switch, it fit perfect into my customers aircraft, where the other one was removed from during troubleshooting of an electrical issue. I think the switch is pretty well made and is working as it should.
Works as advertised
I like this switch. I did not find dimensions for this switch. I am enlarging the instrument panel opening because I need a split switch for so as to save space. The switch will suit my purposes.
These are original equipment however, since the beginning have had a rather short useful life. I always carry a spare in the airplane Iâ€™m flying that is equipped with one. They are easy to replace should they fail.
These switches are made in Mexico. They do not last. I have replaced two of them in my Lancair. They are riveted together, so you cannot take them apart to clean the contacts. Never again. I should have utilized two toggle switches instead when building the instrument panel.
The amp rating for this switch is 20.

The great thing with a Tanis Preheat System is that you can leave it plugged in all the time and not have any concern of hurting anything. The reason for this is with a Tanis Preheat System we heat all of the components that are above the oil line hotter than the oil or another way to state it is the components are above the dew point temperature in your engine. We have the only preheat system that can make this claim. This keeps any moisture that is in your oil from condensing on those components.
Pidg terminals would work, the tabs are .25" wide.
