well, got the recap kit for the new to me 8 fin...got it installed...was a bit difficult...however, i got er done!!!
the kit had caps for c12 and c13....but this 14a board did not have a c12 and c13....was on the diagram...but, not the board...
strange...however, it plays perfectly....waiting on the led kit...and the power supply cap kit....
both are near....should be here this week....along with the rest of the wopl 400 parts that joe sent...
a good day....all in all....
hope all of you are doing great....
