    If the windings are leaking from the harmonics of the VFD, they will also usually leak at some level with normal line voltage.

    Meggering the motor would have revealed this condition. Being that...

    I've never seen a motor fail this way. Usually when the windings start to short, the current draw increases exponentially, leading to over heating, and finally with the magic smoke leaking out.

    Be careful with taking the fuel line off.

    The fuel pump is not powered from the ignition but directly from the battery through a relay. There is also an interlock with the front collision sensor...

    The fuel pump should be inside the fuel tank and the pumps do occasionally fail.

    It is mounted with the fuel gauge sending unit. Usually a metal disc that rotates and locks into the tank.

    The timing belt should be good for 1800-2000 hrs. of run time.

    The biggest issue will be how long the engine sets at the pump off season without running. I would suspect that being out in the...

    you might have a hardware problem. If your machine is fixed and it is supposed to be at 18secs and yet your post flow is 35secs, that sounds like a bad timer.

    How is the timer shown in your...

    It is usually much easier to take the door out, move the machine you really want in and then restore the door.

    Most people fear taking doors or walls out but most times it is the easiesst path.

    There is a menu that you get into that allows you to set the timers and other parameters. This is in the manual.

    What do you want to accomplish with your E-stop?

    A true E-stop that would actually stop the spindle motor without coasting will either need a plugging switch or else a magnetic brake.

    If you...

    i would cut the battery/clock chip off the board, then desolder the pins individually.

    The big problem with this is not lifting the traces from overheating the board.

    The DRO is not actually a DRO in the traditional sense. It is more like a very precise optical vernier caliper.

    These use an etched and silvered glass scale. The readers contain an internal lamp...
