I see a lot of plots of free running 3801’s on the site. I only can find one plot of a locked 3801. The locked plot looks a lot like the ones I have posted. Is there a hidden page somewhere that I’m missing?

If you want to do a few “wire a connector” mods, you can have six sources to compare against each other. You can also have a whole bunch of spares ….
