Hey guys. I am working on the rectifier board in my EBD.
I have the repair kit from Big Baddy and have replaced the fuse clips, ceramic resistors, two burned out fuse clips, and the four big diodes.
A couple of questions:
1) the small diodes and resistor all look good. Should I bother with replacing them.
2) br1 was missing on the board. Br2 looks good. It looks like there is a pad of some kind mounted under br2 between it and the board. I assume it’s a spacer so br2 will touch the metal plate.
I’m at a bit of a loss on what do do with the rectifiers. The replacement ones are smaller and come with one heat sink for br1. How do I mount br1 and its heat sink. They originally install from underneath but I can’t see how they it will fit under the board with a heat sink. If I mount from the top the offset legs don’t match and you are changing where the leads go? I might just leave br2. If I replace it do I have to mount it off the board far enough so it contacts the metal plate to act as a heat sink.
Perhaps if anyone has a picture of how you did your board it would be helpful.
Sometimes the small simple things stop you and make you go hmmmm..
