the clamps are sweet. if a sensor were to ever fail you could just pop a new one in

I redid my sensor wires, and just went right through the case. Now there is nothing to accidently brake off.

I've been following these postings on modifying the DC rigs. Some of you fellas must have real steady hands. When I tried to make some changes to my 1250, it went from mfr to afu in 60 seconds or less. I finally had to put my tail between my legs and send the whole mess back to Digi-Cool.
Miss Brenda was not impressed.

I did the mod with the 1/8" mono jacks. I have cooper pipe straps as well as digicool clamps. I used the cooper straps and they work fine. I was charging a unit today. The clamps worked fine on 7/8 suction. I checked both clamps as well as cooper reading 54 degrees. The problem is clamps didnt deem to be working to well on the 3/8 liquid line. I tried adjusting the clamp but it didnt seem to be working that good. If I have to use straps on 3/8 thats fine. I am just looking for input . thanks

Is their a parts list for doing this mod just to make it a bit easier to collect everything i need without having to make multiple orders. If anyone has them it would be a great help to me and im sure to many others looking to make the modification. I've started making the list but everyone has done it a bit differently and i'm trying to limit the cost because i just droped the money on two set of sensors and ak900's.
I want to do it the best, highest quality way possible. Best products no junk so i don't have to remake them too often! lol
Much appreciated if someone happens to have a component list. Thanks

i bought a bag of female 1/8 jacks & male 1/8 jacks from radio shack .. dont have a p# sorry. .. theres 2 in each bag. bought the small package of heat shrink to color the ends near the jacks on the clamps & already had solder, solder iron & heat gun. cant say i like the idea of having to mod something brand new to make it user friendly but it is what it is ....

If I connect a single sensor to the top port, it can be used as either a SH/SC sensor.
If I connect a second sensor, the top sensor becomes the SC sensor.
