Re: Changing UFO pads

All done and everything worked great.  The rotor retaining screws even came
out easily.  Somebody had put anti-seize on them previously.

The hardest part was repairing the wear sensors.  When the pads wear down
the sensor wire wears through and that opens the circuit.  When I removed
the pads and found the wires broken I figured I was in for it.  After some
thought I realized all I had to do was splice some new wire in.  I went to
some lengths to make sure that the old wire was what was set to wear
through.  This was probably not necessary, what do the rest of you do?

Thanks to all for the information and encouragement.
