I have a bunch of re-imported games I'm running on external step-down transformers. I want to get rid of these transformers as I'm very unlikely to move back to Europe.

I managed to convert an SST that I sold, a very easy re-pinning of a "looped dongle". This seems to be the case with SWEP1 and SG after browsing through the manuals.

However, TZ and DW lists a "line filter assembly" A-15707-120V and JD has a similar part, A-16970-120V.

Anyone have success stories and/or specific howto's on these project, I'd be eternally grateful. The line filter assemblies are not the typically stocked part it seems.

The Stargate is easy. There's a connector plug on the transformer with jumpers in it. You can either grab the US jumper plug, or look in the manual in order to re-jumper it for US voltage (there are three jumpers). You may need mini-fit jr connector pins and the extraction tool.

If some poor soul finds this thread:
JD, TZ and DW - Used the WPC schematic manual (first few pages) as reference to change the varistor (#150-5001-00), fuse (8A) and re-pinned plug to the transformer.
SG - Changed F1 and F2, re-pinned plug fitted on the line-filter box as per the SG game manual.
SWEP1 - Changed fuse and took the lazy route, bought a domestic jumper plug (H-22990.1-1) for the line-filter box. Pinning and fuse rating in the P2K schematics manual.

Crimps and fuses from https://www.greatplainselectronics.com/, varistors and P2K plug from Marcos.

No fires and I now have 2 x 5000W step/up-down transformers for sale if anyone would be interested (no shipping!).
