Thank you, Glen. I will order some from Digikey on Monday. So it seems
that the manual is lying when it says it has seven resistors - I didn't
think that was likely - in that case you would need a a separate pack
for the other side of the pull and there are 3 - not an even number.
I also powered up the unit and checked that I have 5V on on eend and
ground on the other, so all looks good.
Thanks to all for your help,
