The front bezel
(frame round the panel) has been repainted white, and
paint has flaked or chipped off in places, to
reveal a chipped coat of
beige paint. I'd like to refinish and respray it. What's the correct
DEC gray #68 A color close to eggshell toward very light gray.
Sounds like a very pale grey, not quite white? A lot lighter than the
panel on, say, an 11/34, or an 11/03? I'll see what I can find. Thanks!
with the idea of replacing the LEDs with bi-pin bulbs, as the
panel was originally a bulb panel. The resistors for the warm-up
have been clipped out. What value should they be?
leave the leds, likely that mod was done very long ago. The lamps
tended to die too often.
Yes, I'm sure it was done a long time ago, possibly even when the machine
was new. Judging from the date codes on ICs and dates on some boards, it
was made in early 1974.

Are you thinking of the ones on the back (on the outside)? This one is
inside, near the front, and I think Tony's suggestion (for the power fail)

Unknown on direction, I think "out". Filter
was a layer of foam where
was one. I have a an 8f so they are somewhat different but the fans blow
across the cards. The PS in the reaw with its own fan. The 8e has the
power supply down the left side(facing the front from front) and thefrom
(input) to left (out through the PS). The power supply will tolerate
if memory serves than core. Keeping the core cool and at a relatively
constant temp was the key to stable ops.
In that case, I exercise my right to change my mind, and I think they
probably are the right way round. The air blown out of the PSU isn't very
warm, but it will presumably be warmer when I put lots of cards in and give
it more of a load.
At some point, I would like to try to get the original core working (it
wasn't when I got it). Expect more questions, about debugging 8K core
stacks, since I don't have a printset!
