Fixture Units not calculating

I created a plumbing fixture family with a shared parameter (ie, HWFU).  When I set the connector to an Instance parameter, the fixture units calculate just fine.


I set the connector to a Type parameter, load the family into the project (overwrite existing & parameter values), change the Type parameter to a  number (1 in this case), the calculated fixture units in the pipe drop to 0.


Any ideas on why this isn't working?  I'm using Revit MEP 2013.

I just noticed that whatever I set the "default" value to before I load it into the project is what's calculated.  Whenever I change the parameter, whether it be in the schedule or by Edit Type, it does not reflect in the pipe system.
