Yes, if I were to refurbish one of these ever again I would not even bother with the old style controller.I follow your exploits with interest, and your keenness for follow thru and getting things done. That all said, having owned 5 of these units, there is no way I will ever own or work on another until the original GAC controller has been replaced with one of Klopp's replacement controller units. While none or not much of your problems seem related to the original controller, always in some failing state, still it's insane the set up and reliability of these unit using the original controllers, [more rant] I am of the strong opinion/belief it's not a question of when the original controller will cause reliability/readiness issues. Only that it will occur ...
I don't know Klopp from shinola but i know his 831A controllers are the single best improvement preventative effort that can be made to make these sets start/run and operate reliably..
