Barry, I have one of those actuators on one of my cars. Sent the pot to CDS where Pete promptly smoked it.....I mean put an end on it that hooked up to my CDS.
Works great! I had previously ordered the CDS with that input knowing that actuator was coming out. You can get the actuator and pot from Elite and get a core refund for your actuator. I kept my core as a spare and I'm trying various "fixes" and rotating actuators on my cars.
Chuck had problems with his new style actuator. Don't recall the issue, but think it was galling. I think he's using Lee's or Craig's fix now, but doesn't have the gear lead.
