I think bitsavers has documentation on it. An M9312 is a better bootstrap terminator board and can be used in place of an M9301. Those wires go to the "boot" pins on the bootstrap boards.

While there are no specific test points, you can pull *all* of the boards and measure the supplies at the distribution points. If you take the bottom off of the BA11 box you'll see it. That will also give you access to the individual power supply "bricks". They have individual adjustment points on the "bricks". The different "bricks" have different numbering to indicate what voltage(s) they supply.

I probably have some and maybe some extra M9312.

Any MUD memory should work (I have some).
