...if you look at the schematic for the Telex rotors you will see that that
capacitor is always hard wired on those two terminals......so why spend
money for hundreds of feet of conductor when you can simply "hang 'em
high"...the cost savings that this produces allows you to use heavier gauge
wire on the motor/brake wiring - where it counts, frequently used is two
runs of three wire house wiring (2 time 3 = the six conductors needed since
you are no longer worrying about pins 4 and 8)

Works good on long runs - we have several!
