I think we can all breathe a little better now. I had put some long hours of thought in this as well as everyone else. Great news and glad to hear it'* fixed.

Technically, it was repaired during WCBF. Paul, if you'd let me tear into that at the meet like I wanted, we would have found it and saved you the tow!

Many other mechanical issues were resolved at the meet as well. Some that were issues already, some that happened on the road or after arrival. It was a great time. We have some pretty sharp wrenches around here.

Hmmm Paul.. I think it would be good for you to write something up detailing the actual problem and fix to be posted/stickied in 00+ to warn the group.

Two months of frustration over nothing more than a loose fuse.
Not much to write up about that.
Just that the fuse panel socket connections are very prone to loosening.

After I rewired the Water injection pump power supply with its own fuse, the horn did not work because I had temporarily tied into the horn fuse and that had created another loose fuse connection. I fixed it quickly with my new knowledge by simply bending the tabs for tight contact.

I think if someone who didn't know what they were doing electrically, tied into one of the fuse circuits, it could create an overloaded relay to fuse and melt that could cause a fire.

I'm still keeping a close eye on this panel.
