sorry for revival of this old thread, but quickly scanning back
through the messages I didnt see much in the way of follow ups...

Was there any outcome in the end with your tests Dave?? I also have
the non oscillating 18mhz rock here, which does however spring to life
in my xtal tester at its fundemental - (perhaps this xtal is not happy
in overtone mode???)
I also tried a few variants on turns on the coil but cant seem to coax
it into life. I will have a look thru my xtals box to see if I have
something suitable in the mean time.
