The notch was necessary to get shaft speed. It is completely independent of the actuator.

I guess I could write the startup procedure to just ignore can communication until it gets a good can communique from the actuator.

Thanks Hack.  After notching the shaft and having the old actuator installed the app still wouldnt show shaft rpm, or want to respond to the switches without emulate enabled.  At least now with the reman actuator the app shows shaft speed and will respond to switches without emulate on, although i have to briefly turn it then off for that to happen.  Seems like i'm getting a little closer to working with each step but not quite there lol. 

 What should the serial screen look like?  Just gibberish for me lol.   Is there anything else you think i can diagnose?

Got everything working now.  Thanks for everyone's support.  I think this will be a great upgrade and make towing a little nicer  8).  Also looking forward to quicker warm ups lol.
