  1. Hello again... I wrote a long post until the page refreshed. I’m very frustrated now...
    Anyway I made the disassembling.
    What I have now is this:
    • the liquid was like water, no color at all...
    • there was little liquid inside
    • no @BadGoldEagle orange little balls
    • what kind of hoses they are? Seems very strong and made with two materials. The inside is something like plastic, and outside rubber.
    • What kind of glue it is? I need the same glue.

    That’s all... :)

  2. Just sent the same post two times... apparently I cannot delete it...


    Since I am here... would someone explain me “what I have done” in the picture above? It was not me, but the old owner. I do not like it though. I am worried since it is the CPU PCB itself.

    Guys, another thing... what can I do for these?



    do you suggest me to change the thermal compound on the North Bridge too? How can I check its temperature?


  3. Thank you @BadGoldEagle

    Anyway I saw the screws have a "limit” (you cannot tighten them in infinite) and that’s the reason why I asked. I’m thinking maybe they were not tighten enough.


    About the o-rings... yeah but the pressure is between the copper and the little aluminum plate. Which is "unusual”? Strange anyway. But I’m thinking LOL if they were put there for assembly only.

    If you want a newer OS version anyway, then other media will work.

    Yes, I would like the 7.5.3 version...

    If you have an opportunity to get the original install media, I personally recommend taking it just because that kind of thing is nice to have.

    I could have but I really do not need them. I’m taking the Quadra since I want to develop some programs for System 7. It’s a good price IMO and I would like to take it. The problem is it doesn’t power on!!! Instead I need it in working conditions.


    I can take a working LC475 for 50% more and a working Quadra 700 for 100% more (than the Quadra 950). What would you do?


    i’m undecided since yes, I need a working machine, but I cannot spend too much for it! 

  5. Hi,

    thanks for replying.


    I’m getting a Quadra 950 and the owner sells the original floppy disks with Manual apart from the Macintosh. So I’m undecided about buying them too or if I can live without them.


    As I said my real and only need is to be able to perform a fresh install of the Mac System. (I would like the 7.5). No matter if it can be done using online files or original copies.


    The question could be put like this: can I do a fresh System 7.5.3 install using a CD and files from the web?

    Or, instead, I need the original floppy disks (Install 1 and 2, Printers, Tools etc.)


    Thank you

  6. Hello everyone. Thank you 360alaska for writing this and documenting the process carefully. I think I have to do the same job to my Quad too. I’m in the testing phase. I’m getting #2 and #7 LEDs on too and fans are crazy, very very loud and scary. The Mac starts, then blocks.

    I‘ll update you. Although I’m not going to do it soon. (time, space and money issues!!)

    I’m trying to keep everything updated here: https://mepypower.blogspot.com I think I will steal some informations (as much as I can honestly) from this thread so to keep things organized and in one single place. If you want to contribute to it (writing posts G5 related) just tell me and I’ll invite you in as “writer”(?)/author.
