Re: Motorboating
Haven't paid much attention to the amp in question but your mention of voltages jumping to 800v caught my eye. Where would you get 800V (DC I assume) in this circuit? If you're using a DMM I suspect you've got an artifact of a complex waveform thats confusing your meter - first, replace your battery - makes a world of difference. If that doesn't help, borrow an analog meter - a VTVM, or Simpsoon 260, or use a 'scope - then you can get a reading that will allow you to realistically troubleshoot your problem.
