I'm looking for some ideas on how to mount the resistors neatly at the sensor so I only have three wires running back to the govenor, if anyone can direct me to some photo's it would be very much appreciated.

Merry Christmas

Though I have seen them mounted directly on the sensor head I prefered to put the resistor in-line about 3-4 inches from the head to minimize potential resistor fatigue failures due to vibrations...four wires go into the shrink tubing and only three wires come out!

Hey Crash,

Chris said it right, you have four wires coming off the sensor and ultimately you want this to merge down to a single 3 lead wire to go to the governor.

I prefer to have my resistors inline a few inches back from the sensor unit as Chris mentioned. It's better to do it that way. It makes a cleaner install and move the bulky part away from the sensor mounting bracket.

It is best to get some scrap wire and run that from the sensor to the resistors and use a long section of regular 3 lead servo wire with the male plug already installed.

I staggered my GV-1 resistors enough to keep the overall diameter as small as possible, just lay it out and use small sections of heatshrink tubing then a larger piece overall.

I just made a sensor last weekend for a TJ Pro. It was quite simple to do especially with the new sensors that have the wires pre attached.

good luck!
