Re: G-5400

Hi Bill,

Problem solved! 

It was the 100ufd  motor cap in the control unit!

Thanks for the input. Upon careful review of the schematic that I 
received last night I noticed that the motor cap is not in the az rotor
as in the KX600. Tacked in a close value and voila!

Saved me tearing down the unit. 

Thanks to all, I am so glad that I had help. I would have mistakenly
sent the rotor in for repair had it not been for all of the sound advice.

See you on the birds very shortly,

Vince Risalvato
