Phoenix sim adapter

I lost the adapter cable for my Phoenix installation, and just tried to order another. Sorry, says Horizon, you can't buy that. In effect, they're using the adapter as a DRM device: if you could buy...

More construction comments: I substituted a Du-Bro 8-oz tank, same volume as stock but a little lower and longer, so it doesn't require a panel cutout. I think I'll put the fuel dot in the cowling.
