Hello, this is not an answer, rather a request for more information. There are several variants of the D65E, Komatsu made D65-6, D65E-8, and D65E-12, and serial number is ***** as well. Could you provide this additional info. In the meantime, I'm going to opt out of the question so it will go back on the board for others to view. If I come up with any ideas I'll jump back in here.
