Willzyx x0xb0x Fitting Issues
I/O Board mods went well, no apparent problems at this time.
The fitting of the panel to the PCB, went surprisingly well, with no problems at all. All I had to do was rotate the REST ACCENT and SLIDE caps. The side pieces attached easily, the problems are with C41 C36 J6 and most notably J3. With respect to C36 and C41, they need to be moved away from each other and the heat sink from IC20 must be removed. Not sure how that will affect things, IC20 will be right above C36 C41 Q32...
WIllzyx kits come with quick connectors for J3, J4, J5, J6, J7 on the PCB. J4, J5, J7 are not affected but there is no way to slide the PCB into position with those quick connectors. As a solution, I will have to cut the female quick connector off of the wires and solder in a replacement single female pins. The the male side of the quick connector on the I/O board will need to be bent outward to make it all fit.
Prognosis? It will work, but you will spend a few hours and need some patients and soldering skills to get it all done. Be CAREFUL not to mixup any of the IC J3 wires or you F^*k things up a bit.
I will post some pics when its done.
