Macintosh Plus
Hello there, I try to salvage a Macintosh Plus found at the recycling center and I need to change the keyboard connector located on the main board. Anybody has a provider and reference for this kind of connector ? Looks like RJ11 but not so sure... Regards. Philippe

I have done it for similar connetors on computers like the Kaypro but not to one of the original MAC's. 

 

How did the original break? There are many out there:

or

it would be best to remove the old one first to see what style it is.
