    I admire your honesty. I didn't have the crank tool the first time or two. It wasn't available. I fabricated a tool, that looked like a "Y" out of some 3/4" x 1/4" steel bar stock. It was about 2...

    I would try bulbs first - they can fail, and you need the bulbs for the LCD screen to work. If not, it's beyond my abilities, because you're into soldering power supplies, etc. In that case, I...

    I don't know the reason for the chamfering. I followed the TSB and the angle gear went from being wet to being dry.
