Default Magneto Failure


Has anyone experienced both "P" leads in a D2000 shorting out against
the back of the case? It appears this may have happened in a C172
(1979) as there are arc marks at the connectors. Looks like a gasket
should have been install but none is there? Any comments appreciated.

You've got me swinging.

The "P" leads on D2000 screw into the back side of the capacitors last
time I checked.

It is not uncommon for the wires from the capacitors to the points
getting pinched in between the case halves, that's typically an
installation/assembly issue.

The only "gasket" that I'm familiar with goes between the halves, and
is only used on pressurised installs.
