It would take me a little time to dig them up and scan them in but let me know if you need anything.
Yeah, that would be great!
Yeah, I can hardly believe it either. What's even crazier is that I got four big sets in five days, I doubt I'll break that record. What's next, a whole mess of NOS delta CRTs? Haha.
By the way, does anyone have a schematic at least for the GR-370? The thing's full of ham-fisted repair attempts so in some cases I don't know what original part values are. For instance, there's a big mess of electrolytics soldered together on the convergence board where there's supposed to be one. Also, there were two Sprague caps that go who knows where... come to think of it they're probably not original to the set, it's probably too old to have came with orange drops.
