Re: commander not compatible with franken waynes

lol - what would be the purpose of having a SPC if you didn't have Speedpass? Unfortunately, in a past life I worked on those pumps all the time. I know exactly what giant Barrel connector you are referring to. That said I used to have the pin out diagram, but that was many many moons ago. I agree ...

Re: Fuel Leaking through Pump Vent line

New Gasboy pumps use Bennett pumping units. We had a couple situations like that before, where the ASTs were so high the pressure would make fuel come out of the air eliminator while pumping. We went for a quick solution, and ran copper line from the air eliminator back to the tank. At the few site...

Re: TLS450 Printer pulling to the left

No. But my Jeep pulls to the left when giving it gas and then pulls right when I let off. It stopped when I changed both broken motor mounts. This maybe the wrong forum for that. LOL :lol: Did you try a different roll of paper? Paper from another store or vender? I have seen bad paper do stupid thin...

you have a printer pulling too much power..unplug one at a time and see what happens.
I have seen this many times.
The robust printer cutter jammed and the printer keeps trying to cut and it drags the voltage down and comm issues start happening.

Re: Verifone FCI boards--- Bad design/ quality

Here in south Flori-duh, we replace a lot of them for lighting hits also It only takes out those boards. It’s worse then the Wayne EC. I will try the surge protectors from APC and see what happens.

Re: what I think about being on call

I have been on call since 1987. I hate it more and more. We had fix call contracts in the 90’s that would call in the middle of the night to complain that the lights are out on #7. No answering service,just a pager and it would wake me up for that. I complained to the person and the manager about nu...

That’s why I ALWAYS change the default password since 2001.
