Hitachi Seiki peck drill cycle...AGAIN

I've got a Hitachi Seiki HT-25G with a Seicos Lamda 40L controller, and
I can't get the thing to do a "normal" G81 peck drill cycle. I posted
this here a few months ago and nothing that anyone suggested worked. I
ended up manually programming my own peck drill cycle, but I have to do
a few more and it's really tedious. Does someone out there with this
controller have a peck cycle that actually works?

ya try a G83 or a G73 cycle ? I don't know your control but it's good to look in the book . alan

The book lists a peck drilling cycle as a G83 or a G831. G81 is a spot drilling cycle, so I had it wrong below. The problem is that ALL of these are invalid G codes for my machine, because they're apparently optional. Great. Considering that Hitachi Seiki is TU, I guess there's no way to add these optional cycles. Oh, well. Sorry for the waste of bandwidth.

Mark, You might try logging on to IRC chat and look for John, he knows a lot of controls and may be able to help. If I recall your in FL, he's back East also and checks in about 7:00 PM give or take.
