Default RE: I'm getting trouble with J1300

We are sorry you are having difficulty with your 1300. A few issues to check first.
Are you certain that the GDT numbers you are giving are the shut down data, rather than the max reading? It is unusual for an engine to shutdown under these parameters. The menu for this can be found in "show shut down data". Generally if the engine is working on the bench then there may be an installation related issue. There are a number of possible reasons for this including fuel supply which may include a problem with the pump. It could also involve glitches on the radio. We have a glitch counter inside the ECU, but it may be too late to check this. When the engine is run, what is the maximum pump voltage at Max RPM? When the engine shut down in flight was there a puff of white smoke?
Lets check a few things first please. First open the fuse holder and make sure there is a good contact so that there is no intermittant problem on the battery supply. Please check the EGT probe seating we want to ensure that it is not intermittant even though the depth of the probe is correct. If your friend has an engine, swap the EGT probe. Bench run the engine through its full range or ground run in the plane taxiing for several minutes, then hold and run up the throttle setting to full for a minute or two. Move the throttle control between mid point and full quickly to see if this causes a shut down. This could indicate a need to change ramp values. Let us know the results of the above please.
If the problem still exists then we will have you send the engine and ancillories back to us and have it back to you as quickly as possible.
