Thank you both very much. Very reassuring responses, and I don’t think it gets any better than Augusta (at least in the States). Thanks again.

Are the answers to these questions in Section 31A?

I am assuming the answers to these questions are in Section 31A, because they are not in Section 31B.

Different kind of connector.

I appreciate the reply, but it is a different kind of connector than the round Molex pins. These do not have "ears", they are a completely different style.

Thanks again,

Richard
