My ignition switch is getting quite old and sloppy, much like myself.
What is the best unit to replace it with?
I am still running the Mag and batt ignition with a separate starter button as originally fitted.
Also my door lock fell to bits! any suggestions there?
Attitude indicator tilt indicator
I'm replacing my attitude indicator. Does anyone know what tilt angle I should be ordering?

I've had my plane a short time, it came with an acid battery which I will replace with a sealed one. Over the years, battery acid has taken it's toll on the box as well as the aluminum drain tube and it's beyond repair.... need recommendations on a replacement battery box.

Heater Shut Off
I've read the stuff I can about the heater shut off valve for the 195. I saw the info attached to the 337 page. I have not found the valve online yet. Has anyone done this mod recently? Any other info would be great. Any pictures guys might have of the install would be great also. If anyone has anything please send it my way.

IT WON'T START
Today was the day I was to take our local mayor and his wife for a nice anniversity flight around the area. We all got in, buckled up and when I cranked the engine it would not even kick. It was primed and I counted 4 blades and nothing. This is a first. So we took the flight in the A36 and all was well.
I flew it Sunday with no problems at all, so what is the likely culprit? Ignition switch, electrics, fuel, what? It has a nearly new points, condensor and coil and the mag has never not worked. I'm leaning toward ignition problems but have no clue for sure. I can't work on it until next week but I'm just wondering.
Suction relief valve
Regarding the Pesco 3V-195 suction relief valve for the vacuum system: Is there an inlet and outlet on this device, or are the 3/8 pipe thread connections interchangeable? The connections don't sem to be marked. I'm thinking this is just a case where a needle valve allows more air from the screen to reduce the vacuum. If this isn't the case, does anyone know which connection goes to the vacuum pump and which goes to the instruments?
