Worth repairing an ignition wire?

    I have a DLE120 with a damaged ignition wire. Is it worth trying to replace the wire or should I just replace the whole module? I'm strongly leaning towards the latter...

    In that case, do I go with the stock DLE one or an Rcezl? I've had good experiences with Rcexl in my smaller planes and it's even a few bucks cheaper.

    Where is the wire damaged? If it is near the end then it isn't hard to out a new spark plug cap on it. There is a how-to thread in the engines forum

    It's kind of in the middle. I think I'll replace the whole module. Putting it in a brand new plane, so I don't want to take risks.
  4. A little rub thru on the shielding isnt gonna kill your module. A little electrical tape, and some wire looming and noone will be any the wiser.
