TAKE YOUR TIME DAN.. I AM ON THE ROAD ALL DAY ALSO.. WE ARE NOT READY TO JUMP AND BUY THIS MACHINE.. IT IS NOT ADVERTISED FOR SALE.. WE ARE CURRENTLY CHECKING LIENS AND ANY IF MONEY OWED ON MACHINE.. DEAL SEAMS TO BE TO GOOD BECAUSE GOING FOR LESS THAN AUCTION PRICE..LIKE SALVAGE PRICE??
Hey Gary sorry for the delay. This problem could be all electrical either in the speed selector or wiring harness in the connector pins or wires. Also there could be a calibration issue requiring recalibration are possible reprogramming of the controller software. If all the electrical test out good it is also possible they could be some mechanical things going on.
