G3x Touch GEA 24 needed

Unread post by Chalkie » Sat May 14, 2022 3:48 pm

Hi Guys, I posted a thread on the Maintenance thread.

I need to borrow a GEA 24 to see if mine is faulty, before I send it back to the USA.

Can anyone help? Thanks.

Oh, but I disagree!
Yes; you are right.

Amazing how easy it is to confuse a computer, GIGO comes to mind. When setting up the RPM indicator I ASSUMED that RPM 1 was LH Mag P-lead and RPM 2 was the P-Mag fitted to the right. WRONG...

A simple thing like that confused the GEA 24. Looking at the wiring diagram it was obvious there was no connection to the P-lead and the P-Mag RPM wire went to RPM 1. Setup corrected and my fuel tank calibration was available again!!

Two TOTALLY different snags caused by one assumption...
