This is substantially crazy :-)
IIRC the mechanics were kind of sticky when new.
The whole "changing flip-flops" thing really took me back. I learned
to do that in high school on our Control Data G-15. The multiply
instruction was the first to go :-)
I kept it running for some time using that method. (of course we did
not have a budget to order spares)
