Topic-icon 74' Aztec, where the SHUNTS ?

Hi John;
I do not know from personal experience. Most commonly, the reason for the shunt is to keep the large wires out of the cockpit, so they are usually pretty near the generator/alternators. Try to follow the large wires from the generator/alternator at the engine.
According to the drawing you referenced, there's a mount for the shunts. I would look on the forward side or aft side of the firewall to start.

Hi,, I have a 74 Turbo E model Aztec and I'm trying to find the original factory shunts.
From what I can tell in the drawings (Parts Manual) Card 2G16, Figure 38C-57, Part number 23844-00, it is located someplace close to were the wing joins the fuselage. For the life of me I can't find it via any of the access plates, etc.
I need to replace this with the shunt that came from JPI.....
I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction so I can finish the JPI install.

Thank you
