The other day I took the electrical connector off of the VP to check the wiring and pins. The pins and connector looked clean and straight, and the wiring looked unmolested and solid. So, I put some dielectric grease in the pin sockets, like I do with any electrical connector, and plugged it back up. Today, I decided to see if it would buck and carry on. I could not induce the bucking and flubbering at all, and I reamed it hard past redline in every gear or about 10 miles. It revved clean and smooth all the way to 3500 rpm's where it defueled smoothly, like it should, and stayed there. I wonder, if one of the pin sockets in the plug is loose, and a certain rpm's the pin or connector vibrates and breaks the connection intermittently. If so, then the dielectric grease took up the slack. Any thoughts on this diagnosis? Good and bad are welcome, as always! I will continue testing, and update you guys as I learn new things.
