Gene. You are correct. The cap bank pulse output to the battery is very quick and the panel meter does not show it properly. I used a cheap Suzuki bike plus minus 30A ammeter. It respond very quickly and will show you what happens on the output. You will be surprised!!
Hello Vissie I did check local repair shops a few times in the past few weeks and got 1 (one) Found another on the curb, salvaged two diodes. I found a guy in Quebec who has 90 of them (S20SC9M) at $1.45 plus $3 shipping for 15. They're common cathode, 90V 20A. Should arrive next week. Your suggestion with + - ammeter is right on. I used similar and it gives a good idea what's going on.
