RE: Best battery pack for 40 size profiles???

RE: Best battery pack for 40 size profiles???

You're missing the point, whether the HS-225's are over rated or not is not the issue at hand. Has anyone seen this interference type issue and if so, how did they get around it?

Couple of other ideas that I've used for years.

RE: Status Update.

I think that I have a few PBXLs in a closet. If you want me to look, I'll check and let you know. I'm sure that we can work something out.

RE: Starting a ZDZ Super 80

You should not have any problem with a twin. I thought that the ZDZ twins all have reed valves, not the rotary valves. I believe that the boxer and inline twins (plus) all have reed valves.
