Needed: Videx Softswitch, or similar; or diagrams? Or 80-col card.

I have one Videx card, but the softwitch board is damaged, wires are broken and IDK which wire belongs on each pad, and the 16-pin header is missing one leg.

 

I could use a diagram for the card, to build another one; or a replacement softswitch kit. I have an AE 80 col card but it is absolutely filthy with some corrosion. I'm working on restoring it, but I have been a few days  at the task, and have more to go. 

 

I would ideally like the ][+ to run CP/M and AppleWorks with 80-columns, and I also prefer writing software in 80-cols, so, I appreciate any help in this endeavour. 

 

I have a Franklin 80-col card (spare), but I do not have the accessories needed to wire it up to a system other than the Franklin 1200.

I suspect you will be banned, but, for the record, the Videx manual does not have a circuit diagram for the SoftSwitch interface. There are two connectors, one of which is on a larger  trace plane circuit on each side, that I expect to be connected, but it is wiser to have confirmation on this, ere wiring it inproperly and damaing the ICs involved.

WTF is wrong with you?

Not helpful George_labs...  do you have some kind of problem?  Maybe just don't answer if you have nothing to contribute...  We try to be helpful here and enjoy helping one another.  You seem to have some other agenda....
