All,


Am looking for help.


We have a Harvard (AT-6C).


There is what allegedly is called a ballast resistor that sits in an externally accessible electrical box on the left hand side of the fuselage above the left wing leading edge. That box also contains the carbon pile rectifier amongst other things.


Twice now, this ballast resistor has failed in a thermic way..... (replaced, and replacement failed after about 10 hours).


When this fails, on activating battery master, there is no power to the main 28v bus..... only power from battery to starter motor. 28v bus only becomes energised when generator kicks in. Battery does not charge.


Can anyone enlighten what this resistor is for? Rumour has it that it was only to protect old style avionics. If this is the case, would it be safe to remove it since we have modern avionics in the aircraft.


Problem us that we are having difficulty sourcing a further replacement, so the aircraft is unserviceable until a solution is found.


Is there a modern replacement or mod that anyone knows of?


I'm led to believe its 125 ohm, but have no other information than that (and it's a 28v generator based system)


Help please?
