There are a lot of wiki articles with links to the Code of Federal Regulations web site eCFR :: Home.
Recently the government switched to their new web site and the URLs to specific rules sections changed.

So far it looks like the old URLs in the wiki articles are redirected but I don't know how long that will last. I found at least one that was broken. It may become a problem in the future.

I wanted to find and fix all the links again like I did the last time the eCFR changed several years ago but the wiki search function isn't working properly for some reason. Searching for "ecfr.gov" in the wiki doesn't find anything and the links don't appear to show up on major search engines; searching for "www.ecfr.gov site:wiki.radioreference.com" on Google only returns two results for some reason.

Your Google search isn't penetrating the Wiki articles to find embedded URLs.

I've asked Lindsay about this.
