The originator of the Reddit thread works on this simulator and is the point of contact.

They're really interested in moving off the Sun 3/e rather than continuing to try to get spare parts etc. I've also suggested they check the capacitors and fuses, especially on the Ethernet/SCSI cards, since the originator claims multiple failures. The Ethernet fuse in particular is likely very easy to trip because people these days aren't used to AUI adapters which generally *can not* be hot-plugged without blowing a fuse.
