    Mostly 573A's Boots. Not as many 573DL's.

    Fimco picked up a 573A for a few hundred or so, he showed it to me when he was on his RM factory tour trip a couple years back. The difference in the 2 units was nite and day.

    Make sure and verify that the needle kick is going in the right direction. My unit had an internal wiring problem that caused a reverse kick as you approached the fault and a forward kick as you passed it. Luckily I was experienced enough to recognize the problem and correct the internal wiring error.
