Hi Chuck


I am not sure what chris was reading there, but certianly not the ppo2, even with a o2 leak and pressure increas in a closed loop, components like the adv wouyld give way much sooner.

I think there are three possibilities
a) chris was looking at the time
b)scrubber flood had scrambled the o2-cells - but all three in the same way
c) pp02 was .201 - this would mean that there was a possibly stuck solenoid on teh last meters of the ascend. However why is the ppo2 thans slowly creeping a bit up ?

I think we have to wait and see what ap-valves have to say about teh accicdent. I assume Kevin has the unit in his workshop very soon to test it.
