I need to repin a connector for GI burn on a Data East machine. That connector is located in the lower left side of the backbox. Rather than leaning over the machine awkwardly while rebuilding the connector, I was thinking there must be a better way. If I separate the harness connectors that connect the backbox light panel, then I could remove the light panel entirely and set it aside, which would enable me to stand on the left side of the machine when doing the connector rebuild = a much more comfortable stance.
Does anyone else do this?
If not restoring the machine, does anyone remove the appropriate wiring harness from the machine to make it easier to work on the connectors?
Or, perhaps you do something else?
