Don't know if your issues are the result of EOC, but I know that turning on and off any electric, mechanical or hydraulic device is the most stressful for the unit itself. It's like a lightbulb, it can shine virtually forever when it's constantly on, but flip the swich 100 times and it will go off.

I haven't tried to EOC yet because my Berta's engine is still in the running in stage after restoration but I'm still thinking if I should start to EOC.

Maybe I'm the old school guy who thinks that engine feels best when running.

Anyway I'm hoping you'll solve your issues quickly.

Gerhard Plattner: "The best attitude is to consider fuel saving a kind of sport. Everybody who has enough money for a strong car, can drive fast and hit the pedal. But saving fuel requires concentration, self-control and cleverness. It's a challenge with the nice effect of saving you money that you can use for other more important things."
