    ANS 500/700 Raid Card Cables

    Anyone happen to know where one could obtain the proper cables for the ANS 500/700 SCSI raid card. It appears to be a 68 pin scsi ultra connection. But the connector on the main logic board appears to be a small 68 pin female centronics type. Is this even available? The connector on the Mylex...

    Powerbook G3 Wallstreet PRAM and Cap Notes

    Hey so I had a chance to pull apart 3 Wallstreets. I removed the PRAM batts in them before storing them. I was neglecting this and before I forget just had to do it. At any rate I did a recap job on the total of 5 caps in the main unit (not the screen). I did notice a few beginning to very...

    Floppy Drive Grease

    Does anyone happen to know exactly the type of grease they use on the floppy drive on worm drive mechanism (cork screw). I’ve tried a new coat of white lithium grease but a little ends up on the floppy door. There has to be a heavier weight grease they use. It appears to be a light brownish...

    SE/30 Fuse Replacement

    Question on blown fuses on SE/30 boards.. are those 1A fuses “slow acting” or “fast acting” fuses?? I’d like to replace with the same type.. but I’m not sure which one is “the proper” replacement. Can anyone comment? The current one was a BUSS orange in color 1A fuse. It appears the orange in...

    Copying files to USB Freezing

    So I have a PowerMac 8600/300 running OS 9.1. It has a Belkin 2 Port USB PCI card. The system profiler see’s it fine and see’s any USB or CF card as a volume on the USB BUS. It has the OPTI chip. Everything works great as far as mounting and seeing the correct size. If you try to copy to the...

    CF Card, SD Card, MicroSD Card Long Term Storage

    So been reading more and more about this. Varying factors matter between read and write speeds, etc. And typically 5-10 years. So let's say you restore a compact Mac for example and SE/30. You recap the main logic board, recap the power supply, analog board. And finally swap out the failing...

    Macintosh SE or SE/30 Unique Hard Drive Sound

    I'm just trying to figure out when I first started working on machines what the typical model of the hard drives were in the SE or SE/30? I remember a unique squeaking sounding one that worked pretty slowly... It made a pretty cool sound.. Sometimes you hear that same sound in old movies they...

    PM 8600 Rev A & Rev B Logic Boards

    So I purchased a Rev B logic board as a backup. Since it was a Rev B I figured I’d swap it out. Now I recapped it with quality SMD Tantalums before doing this. And it will not fully boot. It powers on and drives spin up and such but no boot chime. I’ve rechecked all the caps and values as well...

    Control Panel Locking in OS 9.1

    So I have a working patched version of After Dark for OS9. Problem is whenever you go into it to make a change or anything you get an error closing it because it magically locks even after you have unlocked it many times.. even on reboots! I would assume this is a bug from the patched version...

    Outbound Notebook 2000 Series - Odd RAM Install

    Hey everyone.. so I literally spent almost all day recapping my outbound notebook. I highly recommend it as mentioned in another post. The power pack external supply had leaky 330uf caps.
