I'm working to restore a STacy for a friend. I have a few detail questions.
It was in pretty bad shape so I am going to tear it down completely and check things out before I power it up. It was stored on a desk in a E-recycle warehouse enterance, open, as a display for many, many years. It was very dirty, hundreds of people probably touched it. There was some kind of grease oozzing out under the HD. Much better to clean it up before adding some power.
What is the best way to clean the handle? 409, brush, magic eraser sponge, a lot of scrubbing barely got some crud off it.
In the notch where the handle hing is. was there some felt or something. There was a sticky film there the same size on each side. I think that would help slow the fast swing it now has. Was there any felt in the case base so the handle would not slap loudly when it is left go of?
I can almost guaranty the HD is bad. It had that graase stuff all over the bottom left corner. I think an UltraSatan would be best replacement.
When I put one in my personal STacy I got one of these cables. http://atariage.com/forums/topic/158443 ... ?p=2353904
I think I would need another. Are they still available? If not, what alternatives are there? What about a new face-plate for the side of the Stacy that would fir it. Or should I Dremal the one I have? Also how to mount it securely in the case. The HD cage It has is just two vertical plates, no cross members. The HD was the cross member, and the FD sat on a couple notches on the vertical plates.
Thoughts, suggestions, ideas??
See pic. This was in the left side port. Any idea what this is. It is a GAL, it reads GAL16V8-25HB1, ST99009. The back just says 1990 and 'Solder Side'
