    Professional Gremlin Hunter wanted.

    I actually worked on the Hurricane today and was looking for some input or feedback. Feedback maybe that's the problem? I ran out of daylight again. I didn't get to finish everything on the shop manual check list but I did get a good start. If we have any electrical engineers please start at post 90 and let me know if you have a clue.

    Froze my toes off today. It's looking like I will have to remove the exhaust pipe and starter. Oh joy! Let's see, replaced the CDI, Circuit board, Circuit breaker, and the Solenoid.

    Thanks Z, Yeah the meter is a pain in the neck. I might not solve this mystery till spring. It was snowing here today and I have other projects in the garage. My biggest addiction is last on the priority list seeing how I can't use it till late May without freezing to death.

    This thing is really getting on my nerves. I seem to have two different starters from the same machines. Did anyone ever have their MFD reading 2 volts higher than it actually should be? http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...=12212&page=10

    If that kitty can shave the mysterious 2 volts off my MFD or the 12 miles an hour while sitting on the trailer. There maybe something in it.

    O.K. here's what I found on your MFD.

    5PSI =21MPH
    10PSI =30MPH
    15PSI =37MPH
    20PSI =42MPH
    25PSI =47MPH
    30PSI =51MPH
    My suggestion would be to get a pressure regulator and start putting pressure to your MFD and see if the numbers jive.

    The MFD electronicallyconverts pressure input from the pitot tube to the graphic display of MPH. The MFD can be checked by applying pressure using the above chart. An inaccurate reading can be caused by kinks or obstructions in the pressure line or pitot tube, cavitation in the pump or wrong operating RPM.
    Since you have none of the above issues, I'd install another good known MFD and see if you don't get rid of both problems.
    Have you verified the part number is correct for your craft?

    Oh try disconnecting the MFD for TWO hours and see if that resets your MFD.

    It's definitely a Hurricane MFD as it has no trim markings on the bezel. I'll have to check part numbers to see if an ordinary MFD will plug in. It's not in bad shape far as the display. As far as unplugging, does taking the battery out of the craft for a week have the same effect or do I have to physically unplug it do to some internal battery? I have a mighty vac somewhere, but where?? That should do the trick for testing.

    Same difference, it should give the capacitors (or whatever it was), that needs time to unload.
