I hope someone can help me. Maybe you can post a link to a web site for me to read? Many of the links I have been trying are now dead. Here is the deal....
I made a great score and found a Color Classic (now my second) at the Goodwill for $11.95. After a new battery and a acetone wash it came to life. Around the same time I received a free Performa 575 and the only thing wrong with it was a bad PRAM battery.
I had read a little about a 575 upgrade to a CC so I thought I would try it. Yes, I know it is a modest upgrade, but that is OK with me. I am looking for 640 X 480. My first CC has a CC II logic board in it and I am happy with the speed. I sent the Performa 575 logic board and the 575 analog board out to be re caped. After the re cap, I installed them back in the Performa and it works great. Now I want to put 575 analog board and 575 logic board in my CC.
I took my re cap'ed 575 analog board over to my buddies house. He is a wood worker and has a 2 thousand dollar band saw with an extremely fine blade. After careful measuring we were able to cut down the 575 analog board to 9 and 5/16th's of a inch wide. It will just sit on top of the railing (after it is cut down a tad) where the CC analog board would go.
I am confused by a few things...
Isn't the 575 logic board a slide in replacement for the CC logic board? I know I have a little more cutting to do on my 2nd CC to make the analog board fit.
I looked at this FAQ:
But I did not understand it all. I believe in the above FAQ it is talking about a Takky mod to a CC logic board. I want to use a Performa 575 logic board and a 575 analog board.
Maybe the 575 logic board will not fit the CC?
If someone could point me to a FAQ for more information I would appreciated it.
I am sure I am not the only one here who is trying to install a 575 analog board in a CC.
Any tips appreciated.
