I'm just finishing a rebuild of my Rotax 185's. I need to replace the Banana pins and plugs on the engine electircal system. Does anyone know where I can find new ones? What size are they anyway?

Thanks in advance and keep flying!

Try radio shack. They should have them. The pin size is about 3/16"ishx1/2". Look at them in the store and you can guess which one it is...inexpensive part too! I'd get a couple spares to keep on hand while your there getting some.

Thanks for the info on the Banana Plugs. I ended up getting a set of four from Best Buy for $8.99. You can find them in their stereo department.

Use solder even if the plug type is a screw on cinch type. The hole in the end is most likely waay too big for the normal 20 gauge wire, so double over the end that goes into the hole. A good idea would also be to add heat shrink tubing over the end to help seal and keep out dirt.
