Considering that i see at least one SMD controller in 0273
(xy 7053-105)

Could it be case that somewhere is pedestals and CABLES ?

Original issue Sun SMD cables is unobtanium, a number of people on the
list recently discussed copying the cables, but when you don't have any
originals one to study....

at least one 3/60 cpu (serial b, ser a, scsi, video)
3/260,3/280: sio a, sio b, ethernet, reset/norm/diag keyboard "walking
leds" video (ecl)

that card with a flat cable, that is i think a 3/80 cpu

It is enough to stuff to configure a rather beefy 3/80, a big enough
