Temporary membership to the club. Have an F14 that was dropped off for some minor repairs, LEDs and a good cleaning. The owner is looking forward to getting this back into shape.
Has anyone made scans of the Yagov and lamp indicator sticker that mount to the diverter ramp? Both of mine are badly faded and I'd like to reprint them on sticky vinyl.
Ok, so I'm teri g to get everything working on this F14 before cleaning it up. I've been successful except for 2 flash lamps. In the pic, this is the big center insert, the top lamp works, the other two do not. According to the manual, it appears these are all on the same transistor? The lower 2 have a different supply wire, but they all appear to connect to the resistor board next to this lamp cluster.
I'm a bit confused how this is supposed to.work.
Lamps are known working. I dont see any obvious broken wires or cold solder.
EDIT: Resolved. I noticed a broken trace and a very sketchy resistor on the left half of the resistor board. Once I realized these resistor boards are two separate halves, I swapped this board with one that only needed a single good working side. Flashers fixed!
I have this topic going separately, but basically a weird switch matrix issue I'm working through.
Only rows 6-8 work correctly, rows 1-5 register the switch in row 6. More details in the other thread.
Resolved. Socketed and replaced U30 and U39. Switches work correctly again.
