Default Re: I found it! A very sorry looking MK14.

Tough choice to make as it does remove a lot of the history of your original MK14 and all your custom mods, though I guess you could recreate those again after you have it working.

Mine has been showing some intermittent connection on the ram chips but can still be persuaded to work.

Are those TI IC sockets on yours? They were poor at the best of times and those socket strips were even worse.

Maybe you could try and get a set of cambion ic sockets to keep the period look. Turned pin sockets would look too new, and would be very difficult to replace in future, if ever that was required, without damage to the board.

Did you consider stripping the board to scan both sides? Or is that going to risk damage to other components?
