Seriously though, do you do all the caps at once, or one at a time? In my practice, I generally do one at a time (at least on through-hole caps) so I can match up the caps lead for lead one at a time. Easier than removing them all at once.

Yeah, I do like the pink marker, helps me to remember which ones I've done and which I haven't, it's an old mechanics trick. I do one at a time unless two manage to come out at once using the twist off method.

Just bad luck then. I once blew one off an analog board that way. Is it possible if you scrub that resistor that you could still read the value?

Does anyone know what resistor goes in R992 on this analog board is? I have a photo of it prior to it being damaged, looks to be a 5.6 kOHM? Don’t want to order the wrong one and then have a problem.

My apologies for the delay, I've removed a couple things to keep this going.

Good luck with your iMac @CYB3RBYTE - it looks like a beautiful system!
