I'm seeing a few potential issues with my pre install. 

1) ICS lower gearbox's have a cut off release feature to release spring tension. When you put the gun in safe the cutoff lever is disengaged and I believe the gears will spin in reverse to release spring tension. Would this not potentially damage the sensor arm? I speak from experience. During a strip down and reassemble of my UAR I wasn't paying attention and turned the sector backwards. Apparently the sensor arm was half engaged and didn't like the reverse spin and popped off. I had to order another( and you were super fast in taking care of me thanks!) one to get my girl back up and running. I noticed during initial prep that the ICS gear doesn't have that egg shaped section for the cutoff lever. its shaped differently.

Now since the wasp resets the spring would potential damage ever be an issue. also is the sensor going to have an issue with the shape and the sensor arm? I can also disable the spring reset and avoid any issues all together and possible change the sector gear.

2) The Sensor board sticks above the lower half of the gearbox by a half mil or so. I don't think is will be a problem when the top and bottom half's mate together but what are your thoughts?

Idle current gage measurements vary among FCUs ranging from 0 to 3 Amps. The idle current sample cannot be measured accurately in this low range due to the low level noise inherent to the device. Any reading below the default trigger level is acceptable. 
UPDATE: Firmware update v0.87 compensates for the variance so it should be near 0.
The primary function is to check that large current flows never occur outside the Run cycle.
Example: External short or low resistive path causing unusual current flow through the system such as naked battery lead touching metal gun frame. This can also occur if the brake FET has failed.
In any case, the fuse will blow if it is excessive flow thru the FCU.

If this occurs, you need to pull the battery  and test the FCU separate from the weapon to verify integrity.

Rate of Fire gage seems low.
If exceeding 25 RPS, you may get erroneous readings such as half speed indication. 
Example: at 35rps, gage indicates 17.5rps

This can also occur at lower rates if the sensor switch gets contaminated with lube or similar.

Problem: Run Current gage shows low compared to histogram.
Fix: Turn off Histogram or let it time out - gage always displays last sample value.

Problem: Status - Run Current does not change. Histogram works.
Cause: Underspin set too low.

Changed the default theme to a more mobile friendly version. If you prefer the old or can't see the new, then change it using the theme selector near the bottom of the page.

M14 Cutoff Lever DIY modification

The M14 kits have a modified cutoff lever included for 2 reasons...
 1. It keeps installation simple. (Install rating changes from 2 to 5  Sad  )
 2. You have the correct part to return the weapon to original operation if you remove the install(doesn't fit, don't want it anymore, etc.)

If you want to modify your own M14 cutoff lever, use a dremel with a cutter tool and make a clean cut and remove the shaded portion shown in the pix. Remember: If you botch it, you own it.

The purpose of the cut prevents the selector bar from engaging the cutoff lever. So, after doing the mod, test that it clears the selector bar.
