I have since switched to the 5.5 for another 2 hour hunt, and the detector still works perfect.
the 8" coil will not respond in disc mode, and nothing responds in AM/pinpoint either. I tried moving the wiring at the plug and also where it goes into the coil, and there is no hint of a bad connection.
In case it matters, this coil came with my E-class Baron, so it is an unmarked, no decals, newer version?
Is there anything I could test, if I can take the coil halves apart?
My other 8" for my Prohunter ended up getting water in it from a wet field hunt yesterday, and it was falsing really bad, so I now have the coil halves apart, trying to dry it out. (so I do know about the single strand wire in there that I need to be careful about....if I take the other coil apart) Thanks
