    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    Yes! I removed the metal mechanism and only soaked that part. To remove the top mechanics, you have to remove the PCB on the bottom (3 or 4 screws) then underneath that will be 4 more (longer) screws that release the metal part. JDW has a video on YouTube that shows how to do it.

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    You shoulda seen it when I took it out. Everything was seized up, no eject, couldn't even slide a disk in. I soaked it in alcohol and then scrubbed it in Windex. I used white lithium grease on the metal parts and silicon lube on everything that touches plastic. Now it's super quiet and moves...

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    I was offered an analog board by CC_333 so I'm gonna go that route and save this one to fix later. In the meantime I got my 128k and my 512k running beautifully. I had to take apart, scrub and re-grease the 400k floppies in both.

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    I don't have anything but a multi-meter. I may just look for an analog board and donate this one to someone who can fix it.

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    I fired up the Plus after reflowing the solder joints on the analog board. I get a beep and my Floppy EMU lights up steady now. Unfortunately, the screen stays black. I'm guessing this points to the flyback. Are there some tests I can run to see if that is in fact, the issue? I see only one...

    Mac II drive sled photo?

    I have a Mac II with no hard drive in it. I want to restore it as close to original as possible. Does anyone have a photo of the original drive mounting method in a Mac II?

    Thank you, that's what I was looking for.

    Yet Another LC PSU thread - How to test with a multi-meter?

    How can I tell that? What I'm after is what pins should I put the multimeter on?

    Yet Another LC PSU thread - How to test with a multi-meter?

    Unfortunately, I care about all of them. Is there no way to test directly from the pins on the psu molex?

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    Retrobrite day! I figured I'd do some extra things since I already had the tubs filled.

    Yet Another LC PSU thread - How to test with a multi-meter?

    I have a TDK and an Astec PSU for my 2 LCIIs. Both are completely dead. I could just re-cap and hope for the best but Id' like some guidance on testing voltages with a multi-meter. How can I tell what the voltages are coming out of the PSU? Also, I have lots of hardware reference books but none...

    Are there any SCSI2SD v5 available anywhere?

    I've already done a search on ebay.

    That link is no good.

    Are there any SCSI2SD v5 available anywhere?

    I'm looking for a mounting bracket just to keep it from touching metal while I'm using it.

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    I'm seeing an analog board on eBay that looks clean, I may just go for that. If nothing else, I'll have a spare.

    As soon as assembled boards are available, I'm buying one. Maybe I can get my Plus on the network!

    Starting a Mac Plus restoration. Need a new flyback wire with anode cap

    It looks as though all the soot is originating around the flyback. The soot is mainly on the flyback, the flyback cable and the back of the CRT where the anode cap is. The clear anode cap and the the cap at the other end of the wire leading into the flyback is kind of "wet" with an oily feel...

    Got it taken apart and the whole inside is covered in black soot, WTF?
