Hi Mick, I would have thought you'd had a belly full of CBs. Or are you suffering from addiction?

Hi Mick, If I can help anyone, I do so. It's no great sweat on my side as I'm retired. Plus it's a poor world when everyone sticks to themselves. But, as the title to my introduction goes, I'm "Oldie, Moldy And A Brain Picker". You take into consideration that I have also received lot's of help from Chas and David (davidmpye), concerning problems that I could have sorted out myself if I had the time to sit down, study, and experiment. But, at almost 74, time is not on my side. I am more than grateful for the assistance I have received, as it has saved me a vast amount of time and aggravation. I also notice that you are amongst those that help others, not only that but are helping to keep C5s on the road and not stripping them down to make a quick penny. Keep up the good work 'me old fruit'.

Hi Karl There is money in stripping them down, but I do this as a hobby. A few I have rebuilt have been done at a loss, but others have paid for the loss. I get more out of returning them to the road than putting an extra slice of bread on the table, lol. It was a challenge to return 7 control boxes to life and I am looking for some more non workers to do the same, not sure what I am going to do with them after they are up and running. I have now bought loads of components, I now have every component on the board, so I think my next step maybe to cost the actual boards up and see if I am able to solder all the components back in and end up with a working control box. I think Chas, Marty and yourself have helped no end and speeded this up for me. Many thanks Mick

I can't see where the problem is, the solution is simple, buy 7 defunk C5s.
