The wire finally came today. It was at the post office for two days..

The Post office didn't put a notice in my box that the wire was here. So it's been here for days until I finally asked the nice lady postal worker if it is possibly back there in their office. I showed her this tracking photo on my phone. She took my phone and went behind the USPS curtain....

Sure enough, there it was. The nice postal worker fell on the sword. She said it was all her fault. She forgot to put the notice form in my box...So sorry...gave me my phone back and the wire.

So here's a pic of what I got and where I got it and what it cost. Hope it helps.

Bruce, unless it has been removed from your airplane by a previous owner, the SafeFlite stall warning system had a small button installed on the subpanel right below the throttle.  It's a momentary switch, and when pushed in it will silence the warning horn.  Supposedly this was so the pilot could prevent the horn actuating when doing lazy eights or other utility maneuvers.  On my airplane, I pushed the button in one time and it got stuck.  When I finally got the button to pop back out, I decided not to mess with it again.

Interesting, Dennis. There does appear to be a hole in the panel right below the throttle. But it doesn't look like anything had ever been installed in it.

Yes, that's the telltale hole; but the sub-panel behind it has never been drilled.  Sometimes people have replaced the sub-panels with some that were cleaner or better condition than their originals.  The SafeFlite systems are found mainly on the dash 3 airplanes, and it may have been an option.  They aren't often found on the earlier dash airplanes.
