also- if i use mdi
c-10 ( leaves direction led on)
m3 (turns direction led off)
m5 ( direction led reverts back to state that c-10 left it in- on)
so- hopefully- this is not a problem

I decided to do it the hard- easy way!
Hard as I had to find a motor to fit, work out its encoder as wires were chopped off
Work out motor characteristics ohms volts etc .
Make encoder and power cables
Set up an old servo drive to run it.
Work out how to program it etc
Make new mounting plate, fit new pulley - different bore.
But
It works :-)
