Well I took the board out and disconnected and tested everything on it. The board is actually very simple, I could build a whole new one for probably $50. There are 8 diodes and they tested all over the map despite identical part number. 3 seemed ok, 1 tested sometimes ok and sometimes dead, 2 tested dead, 1 tested shorted across, 1 tested shorted across and to ground. After some investigation I finally found them at a reasonable price, they should be here by the end of the week. Then I'm pretty sure I'll be back in business and can get going again on the kammback/boattail.
