I don't suppose you still have the old M8330 do you?

A year and a half ago I was playing with a PDP-8/e and trying to get an
EAE working with it. I ended up needing a later version M8330. My
original boards were rev 1 and the EAE didn't work until about rev 3. 
The drawings I found online were WAY different than the boards I had. 
For the EAE, it looked like there were some serious timing issues, so
the later board revisions were quite significant.

So, if your boards don't match the drawing rev, don't expect there to be
a match.
