i'm not an idiot, i have my own shop where i do stuff like this regularly. I understand that i need a schematic, that's why i'm patiently waiting that someone can [virtually] dust off one their folders in their computer and email me that service manual or schematic.
Beseler, those greedy bastards, charge $75 for the service manual. Absolute insanity, for an item they longer support..
