    Oh, yeah! Thank you for reminding me of that battery! I forgot to get one on order. The one that's in there is about 11 years old. The voltage was close to the threshold. That's most likely the...

    Vancbiker,

    I'm thinking, like you said, there has to be at least two current settings for this thing to operate. Maybe it's velocity settings? Why they would be user selectable is beyond me.

    I took the cover off the X-axis encoder. Low & behold it is the SAME as the turret encoder. After giving it a think I unplugged the X-axis power and signal cables...

    The value stored in param 2060 A-axis = 7282. And, is the same for X & Z.

    I can't see the p.n. of the Z axis servo but it certainly looks physically larger. Strange that it's current limit would...

    I moved the original encoder to the new(old) motor. Hooked it all up. Same old same old. HCA alarm and turns just a tiny amount.

    I found a blurb on another forum where the guy states if the encoder has a red hat then no alignment required. So, I decided to risk it on the purchased motor. Once I got the correct four screws out...
