    The early 4 fins had the bias transistor in a different place. Measure center to center off the backplane holes then transfer that measurement to the chassis and drill a hole....

    Okay, perfect. As I suspected, drilling new holes will be the key. Now I can get on it and finish up. Thanks Dennis

    Yeah, I saw the coordinates. But to be precise, I put the boards in the chassis with just a couple socket screws, then used a transfer punch through the board hole to get it exact. Job accomplished. Thanks for the continued assistance.

    Okay, here it is, so far. On the boards, I certainly realize I generated redundant jumpers. Stupid mistake. The rectifier obviously isn't soldered, and the two empty posts are, of course, for the transformer leads, the two white leads go to the capacitors. Does all this look okay?

    I think I'll wait to install the capacitors. The top one makes working on the fuse holders difficult. I'd like to get those wired in first. Any suggestions about the fuse holders?

    As in suggestions about moving forward. My plan is to install the boards today, connect the respective leads to the fuse holders, and then install the capacitors. I just want to make sure I'm not forgetting anything that would require me to take things apart and redo work. It seems pretty straight forward, but those are often famous last words. I'm on Joe's crowded list for a control board and still working with Don to get a relay kit.
