Does the green square transfer pump switches illuminate internally. (mine don't) And I'm putting in the quick change rear seat, however, the airplane is covered so welding is out of the question. With that, there are two welded female threaded bushings on the cargo door side of the fuselage. Is that where the yoke goes to carry the bar to the otherside? It originally came out with the regular bench seat.
Thanks in advance and God bless all of you who have served or are serving for this great country on this INDEPENDENCE! Holiday,

The green fuel rocker switches illuminate in my MX7. Can't answer your other questions though.

Thanks, I need to find out why mine aren't lit.

Probably burned out. Replaced ours not long ago. Fairly reasonable from Maule.

The threaded pieces might be for rear seat shoulder harness. Anyhow, you will need the drawings from Maule to convert from the rear bench style seat to the sling seat. You can get the drawings in paper form when you order the sling seat parts from Maule or order the parts CD for the M5. I highly recommend you purchase the “quick release” kit for the sling seat. Makes removing the rear seat quick with no tools. I did this on my M4 and love it. Best of luck.

Thanks to all who responded. The lighted transfer switches were new and never did light. Seems unlikely that both would be inop. Might be a wiring issue. I assumed the three wires, were one to do the illumination. But stranger things have happened in aviation.

The two threaded bushings are about 5-6" apart and about 3-4" above the rear cargo door frame. I will try the CD again and see if I can figure it out. I called Maule but apparently someone left the door open and they all escaped for the week.

My seat bolts up maybe ~2" above the rear cargo door frame, let me know if you'd like exact measurements.

'79 M5.
