For better or worse, to drag and drop photos, AFAIK, you MUST go to the Gallery section, create a gallery and then you are allowed to bulk upload pictures. You can upload JPEG's, but if they are too big the error message says wrong format, or somethimng, rather than too big.

The new boards are physically the same but the motor and pickup connections are in a different position. The biggest problem is that the size of the mounting hole has been increased and the old screws no longer fit.

If it's only the hole size that's larger (and the positioning is still the same), can you just use thin washers to retain the board using the original screws?

Cheers,
Alan

If it were only that simple, a metallic washer will short out on the wiring for the next 18 socket. What is needed is a plastic top hat washer to positively locate the pcb, just a washer may allow it to float fore and aft and the switch contact one of the flywheels. A photo would show it all but I still can not upload one.

You can see the mounting holes here.



IIRC unlike Farish the mounting holes donít do anything on a 67, so you could just use Black-Tac or similar to keep the PCB in place.

As for photos, thereís literally a button saying ďadd image to postĒ below the emojis. You fill in 3 fields and itíll automatically insert it inline, whether using phone or computer. you donít want an attachment, thatís not much use for photos. Itís a bit quirky as every other forum Iím a member of doesnít host the images, you have to put them on Flickr or whatever first, but it works.
