thanks for these great information.
I just looked these up on radioshack.com, and they are 2.69 for 4...does that sound right? Can they really be that cheap??I replaced my diode with one from Radio Shack since it is much cheaper than the OEM. I used a 6amp 50v rectifier diode. There isn't a whole lot of extra wire to play with but it's simple if you know how to solder.
