solder-in internal //gs keyboard connector?

Howdy, folks!

 

I have a line on a //gs motherboard, but it doesn't have the internal keyboard connector soldered in.  I intend to do a little creative dremeling and standoff moving on a //e enclosure and install it therein.

 

I have the appropriate pin-row connectors for the internal keyboard connector.  Is there anything stopping me from just soldering one in?  No ICs missing that are needed or anything?

 

Thanks! :D

Been there, done that. :-)

Sounds like you are doing what I did some 13 years ago:

But no, there is nothing else required to get the //e keyboard working once you solder in a header for the keyboard cable.
