    hey all, I have my buddy's case CTL this weekend and for some reason this morning the hourmeter is going wacky and racking up hours like crazy. Every few seconds of runtime and it will throw another hour on the meter. The meter is part of the console with the key/hyd lockout and all the other functions and it is all fed by a big block plug on the back of the console, so I need to isolate the feed wire for the hourmeter and disconnect it until he can get to the dealer monday and order a new one (big $$$ i imagine). At the rate it is putting on hours I will have a few hundred more by the end of the day. Thanks, Josh
