I picked up two Macintosh Pluses today with loads of extras. Manuals, OS disks, a carrying case for each, two keyboards, and a 30mb external SCSI drive. One of the machines powers on fine but the display seems a bit off like it is pushed a couple centimeters to the left. The pots may need to be adjusted but I'll have to go to the hardware store for a long enough torx wrench to open the case. The other machine powers on, pretty sure it is suffering from a common broken solder joint issue. Should be easy to fix.

I am trying to locate some RAM for at least one of the machines. I know it needs at least 150ns non-parity 30 pin SIMMs and I know about the deal with the resistor. I just need clarification on the proper chip configuration on the RAM. It appears some sources say 2-chip sticks won't work while other sources are seemingly selling 2-chip sticks as compatible.

Has anyone used 2-chip sticks from welovemacs or memoryx in their Plus?

Nope, haven't bought a 1MB SIMM in 25 years. That said, I've got a good sized bag of 68kMac SIMMs and a Plus for testing. Pester me in PM and I'll find a set and mail 'em out as freebies. I've already got three packages to go out within the week for a trip to the P.O.

One of the two Pluses I acquired in a conquest a month ago had two 2-chip 1MB SIMMs installed. Booted fine, so they work, surprisingly.
