>> Also, I have a separate 11/70 rack, with no cards, but with a control panel attached. Many WW pins are bent. The caps and switches are again very damaged.
>> I have not powered it, and don't think that I should. I am partway through a couple of projects to restore it, mainly a project to replace the power supplies with PC style supplies, and another project to replace the switch panel with a touch panel + USB that would allow the unit to operate without the switches. I did not complete either project.
>> As it is an incomplete system, or at least the CPU/memory is there, but not complete enough to operate, I was planning to augment it with these projects in order to operate it as is.
>> The ribbon cables that join CPU to memory were just cut in two.
>> Someone was very rough with it.
>> I would like to sell it to someone that wants to proceed with the restoration of it.. but have no idea where to begin.
>> I am in Pittsburgh.
