I won a too good to be true Mac Classic II on ebay some time ago as "working" for a whopping $18 shipped. The screen shown in the auction displayed a disk with a question mark, so I expected the hard drive to be dead...which it was in the end. What I didn't expect is to turn it on and not get that screen and just some scrambled garbage. Upon inspecting the board this was yet another cap issue....all of the caps were leaking badly. H454 once again came to the rescue and I shipped the board out to him for recapping. I took a chance on this one as I was not entirely sure it was only a cap issue...but what the heck.
Well, it came in today. I installed the board, crossed my fingers and flipped the power. It chimed nice and loud and display! I had some 7.0.1 images (I tried an imaged 7.6 OS card...it worked...but it was laggy) and installed 7.0.1 to a new SCSI2SD from Inertial Computers. I love this device. I have had nothing but like with the V5 board
And, here is the end result. Picture of how it was, install of the SCSI2SD, and the final result. Very cool to have a B/W Mac. I have wanted a fully functioning one for some time. Thank God the floppy drive worked!
