Any way all I needed was a direction in which way to go as far as replacing pots..its only two in the pedal so from what was posted above and from the pics I would say its the pot connected to the pedal and not the hand knob that adjust for max amp out put. This is an excellent post because that foot pedal looks exactly like mine inside and out I have a 160PI. Will probably try this mod....Longevity only warranty's their foot pedals for 6 mos. I am just hoping I can find another pot with the correct ratings.
    The ohm rating should be marked on the pot you wish to replace. To confirm the rating, measure the ohms across the two end connections on the pot, since it is likely that the defect is on the wiper contact in the middle. A new (linear) pot can be obtained from Mouser.
