Hi
There is only 3 commons , that is one common for each set of 6 point switches , i have been looking on the net for the past two hours and one post saids that the diodes should be mounted acrost the coils as the gm instructions show sleep motors and not peco standard motors , i am getting confused ...many thnks

Hi Chris

Thank you so much for all your time and help , if only eveybody was as helpfull as your good-self , i now know wha i have done wrong i was puting the diode out the back then joing another one in series , hence i was getting back current to the diode in line , i have now made a block of diodes that all end up at the gauge master end on all seprate circuts and it works fne , i do think the instructions need to be re-written for the gaugemaster , thank you so much for all your help and hope to see you at a show one day , many thanks to you chris , have a great day .........
