During last days ... due to a cold that kept me far from office ....
i had time to do something ... well .... not so many things as actually
there are a couple of things that i've to set up before announcing that construction will begin soon !!!!
but meanwhile i played a while with a block 52 stick and a block (maybe 5) base ..... too less informations available on these items ......
So ..... i started with main problem, while checking also the SSC modification thread ..... and thanks to all for the precious informations !!!
The stick have a connector with a lot of pins (counted.. but can't remember right now)
and the Base has a less populated amphenol connector (518-7001)
Now.... what to do
changing the connector on the stick or on the base
As i don't have many informations about the stick installation i decided to go for replacing the base's connector ... (it is on the way ....... will rewire and install as soon as received)
So .... removing the connector it's not so difficult ... even if i understood what i had to do first asking to a Friend and then opening the device to understand where the cables were running.
1st Step: uninstalling the retention ring:
With a little screwdriver we need to push the retention ring in the place showed with the arrow ..... pay attention.... when it's out his place it will jump around... better to keep it far from eyes ....!!!!
2nd Step: loose the screw indicated by the other red arrow ...... that screw holds and tights a cable retention.... and the cables are the stick's cable that run in connector just in the midde of the connection panel
and here how the base was appearing while the connector come out
As the pins of the new connector are more little than the old one ... i decided to go for a straight CUT of all the wires .... in any case they won't have been usable during the rewire's works.....
Ok ..... i still need to place the connector .... but here's how my stick and base actually appears !
Some other jobs to do .... but at least for the nice resoult... i'm just happy !
