If that is the original monitor. Here is the manual. It will have what you need to know for that remote board.

If you are not already aware of them, these guys are a good source for arcade electronics:

They are especially good if you are like me and electronics are relatively new to you.

You can source the stuff from other places for a few pennies less, but this site is arcade oriented. It makes it easier to find what you are looking for.

Thanks Mike.
I'll order some bits from them for sure.

That a remote degaus button? baller.

Not sure why this was moved to restorations/repair, this is building a whole new cab right? Or are you just repairing the old one?

Right about the degauss button!
I thought that was genius too.
Not sure why all chassis don't have these things.

Even though I am having to rebuild nearly the entire cabinet from scratch (it was REALLY hammered and rotten) because I DID actually begin with an existing cabinet it seemed more appropriate for this to live in restorations, so I asked Scott what he thought.

Appreciate the replies gentlemen!
I will need help with this one along the way for sure.

Looking forward to head to head racing!

Mike A:
A lot of people would have just parted that cab out.

Thank you for saving a game from the grim reaper.

Hmmm, very wise indeed!

Right now I'm busy basking in your wisdom, looking at the ease with which you did all those nice cuts in a very short time. Impressive work  :cheers:

Thank you Mike.
Wouldn't have it any other way really.

If I can find other carcasses out here to give another life I will.
It is a slippery slope, especially for one with my "I can fix that!" disposition.

Probably better for my life at home/romantic relationship that there aren't more at my disposal regularly.

That wisdom should feel like deja vu !
Hopefully I didn't inadvertently roast something in that chassis and it works at least as well as the other one.
Hopefully we will see soon.

Those cuts would have sucked (driving cabs are a little crazy I have learned!) but my new (rather old really) table saw rocks.
I probably spent an hour scrubbing rust out of the deck, cleaning and lubing the bevel and height gears, squaring the fence, and finally burnishing some Boeshield into the thing, but it is close enough now to call it jazz- and well worth the effort.

Full sheets of ply beware!
 :lol

Tomorrow I hope to get back to assembling the core to the base- but we'll see if I have any spare time to do so.

Still hoping for a magical source of side art to appear but that is still a long way off-
And not necessary to be able to drive it!

AND...

The other fun thing I found (when I was blowing all the dust and mouse ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- out of the PCB cage- and boy am I glad they decided all this stuff should live in a metal cage) is that not only did the brains of this thing NOT go swimming like the rest of it appeared to have, but that this machine (like my functional one  ;D ) has the Tournament Edition security chips and data drive- and on an SSD even!



It is now clean enough really that I will resist giving it a bath and just get the cabinet built and stuff it all in to see if it all still works.

Maybe by the end of the month...?
