Re: triac problems..

thats alright, but won't help for dimming purposes<p>the controller that controls the triac pac
has many functions...flashing / dimming etc.
its got many patterns as well as one of the best color organs i've ever seen.except here they call the color organ a audio processor... thanx anyway.

Re: electronic govener for gas engine

yes, i know a lot about gas engines, but you will not find the air vain controled governers on a horizontal engine, the governers are internal with centrifical weights. the parts are no longer available for this engine, thats why i need a electronic version , i like to have something kind of accurat...
