    Setting up a MD-11/12 isn't intuitive but the manual makes it possible every time (unless the MD is broken). Pay careful attention to the details because there are many interacting rules to transgress.

    as well as a serial number dependency the drive is dependent on leaving the wind on lever in fully parked position, there is a page on unjamming it after any rule transgression...
    I appreciated that, I just wanted to point out in principal that there's a difference in having a repair manual and having the training, skill, knowledge, experience and test equipment to carry out a repair.

    All fixed. A bit of benign neglect then a fiddle and it went 'click' and is now purring like a kitten
    There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

    It is easier to load a Barnack than getting the motor to work. Nikon goofed.

    Maybe taking it into the garage and showing it the bench saw, drill press and BFH had something to do with it...

    Maybe that's what I need to do with some other stuff around here too. My FE got out of sync once a long time ago with my MD-12. I have snagged that link to the manual. I can't believe I didn't go there and look at it.

    From the same era, my FA and MD-15 also lost sync just once......well maybe twice, it's been awhile. I am paranoid now about being anal with my FA and FE and motor drives. Same way, everyday, no variation in anything I do.....which by the way is exactly how the manual says you should operate the thing......I know, read the manual.

    Good information and reminder though!!
