Honestly, I'm not qualified enough in this field to refute any claims... I'm very likely to someday be the guy that manages to burn down his house armed only with a multi-meter and a AAA battery, and forced to turn over his hot pockets in defeat.

All I can say is: "if I measure 15k across those leads while the unit is powered on, my test harness zeros in on 1:30, every time... if I dial in 15k when the unit is powered off, it wanders off."

I dunno why...

Jay

At least you have your comedy carrer to fall back on if this $5 gasoline thing is all just a blip!

Not sure if you saw my edits before posting, but I didn't quite get all the details locked in before I opened my big trap. Sorry about that. The thing that gets me is + OR - 2K. I can see always 17K or 13K, but have no explination for both! Probably the best documented scientific evidence for paranormal activity I have ever seen.

Guys, when Russ and I were going through the timer card setup on my install, we did it KOEO and watched the LEDs on the board with a stopwatch. Then, we did it live (with diesel) once to confirm. Maybe incorporate that into the instructions to save folks some fuel.

Moved the "troubleshooting discussion" to it's own thread to keep this one on track.

I have a V3 Vegistroke system. As I was doing some work under the dash, and a fuze fell out of my timer card. Can someone post a picture of their timer card so I can figure out which slots the fuzes are supposed to be in? I would be most grateful!
