He and I discussed the circuit and he felt I should put another of those back in the circuit w/ a MOV= to zeners back to back, in parallel w/ the surpressor. He said the surpressor is REALLY fast and the MOV is slower which will cover all bases. Thanks so much Samurai, Budget and all of you other people that helped me with my problem.
Hey, that's great information-- thanks for the followup!  :dude:
