Yes, I know, its not a vintage radio but the struggle continues to make this vintage computer work again.
I finally persuaded the wretched main CPU board to run and co operate with the ROM program and talk to the RAM!
Not exactly what you find in a valve radio but in computer evolution this is really cave man stuff.
I packed the lot up into a box and dumped it in my sons studio, "over to you son!"

I've got other hobby problems, I leapt into the Morris and the clutch pedal sank straight to the floor, no hydraulic pressure, yep master cylinder dry. Bugger the fluid has fallen out and added to the patented Morris anti rust program in the floor platform.
OK gotta fix that.
Did a electrical check, low beam headlight does not work. That's the floor mounted dip switch gone open.
That's the switch that they built the whole car around on the assembly line, you know, the one you can only get at by hoisting the car and reaching right up in THERE.
Ok gotta fix that. Funny what happens to a car that's not driven every day, all of this was fine at rego time in December.
Oh well.
