You hit the size on the head, 1/4-20.  There are three ribbon cables and one small Molex connector.  I recommend labeling the ribbon cables as you remove them (if they aren't already), or you're going to be tracing through a rat's maze to get them right again.  -- Ian

So bring a socket set. They look 1/4-20 or thereabouts. There is
probably a cable we will also need to deal with, that connects the VAX
to the MAP.
