    IMG_20230921_210738228.jpg IMG_20230921_210808705.jpgIve had it 2 months works great. I noticed this rusty cable holding two disconnect pieces together. It works fine now but like anything rusty, not for long.
    Anyone here experience this before, what's the easy or correct way to fix this without rust as an issue ??
    I wonder if it's in the Chilton or Hayes repair manual ??

    Exactly. We used everything you mentioned in the F-14. The only place we used copper "shear wire" was on the fire extinguisher handles (1 EA) for left and right engines. Well, technically they were fuel cutoff handles you had to pull; then, depress the button underneath to discharge the fire extinguishing agent into the respective engine nacelle.

    Now that I think about it, we have different size aircraft cable at work. I'll have to take a look at what's best.
