Well after replacing the nose strut and getting the engine checked over, I have changed the entire wireing system over to the Viking wire moduel. Engine now starts much better than before. I can't figure out just why the ECU didn't like the system that I started out with. At this point, I don't care why, just that it works now! And it does.

I would like to thank Jan, Casey, Kira and the rest for all the work they did on my engine after the prop strike. One tough engine.
