Finally getting to some projects that have been parked in the shop for a while. Decided that Seawitch has been on too long of a break and needs to get back to work.
Overall the game appears to be complete, with nothing obvious broken or missing on the topside. The PF is dirty and has some wear. Not sure how far i will go, but my first approach is always to get the machine running and playing 100% again.
The cabinet is solid (Has some dings and scrapes but structurally sound) and and has the correct legs which is a plus.
Inside the head the boards are complete and look ok. Battery is still on the board but doesn’t appear to have leaked alkaline. I do have an Altek if need be but if i can i will preserve the original board-set. I have some spare SB 300’s and a lamp driver board if need be.
After clipping the battery, the fun will begin in the lower cab. The rectifier board is toast and i already have a new repro one that is much better. Lots of wire splices with some good ol electrical tape or wire nuts insulating them. And a bunch of wires soldered directly to the header pins on the back of the board. And looks like a volume pot was Repurposed from something else, wrapped with an obscene amount of electrical tape.
So gonna start with the wiring and swapping in the new rectifier board. Then a PS rebuild so i can test some voltages.
