Modifying the Electronic
I don't think the Electronics Module, EM needs
to be removed form the mounting plate and it is undesirable to do so.
Step1. Mark a line across the EM where the potting
needs to be removed and have a damp rag handy.
Step 2. Make a cut, break line in the epoxy
with a Dremal tool at the line.
Step 3. Heat the epoxy on the edge across from
the Trigger and carve it off with a Stanley knife exposing the edge of the PCB.
Step 4. Simmerily, carve off the edge of the
epoxy around the terminal that goes to the Pulse Transformer.
Step 5. Heat the top of the piece that need
to be removed, stick the point of the knife under it and pop it off.
Step 6. Melt the solder around the terminal
to the PT and brush it off. Also wipe the solder off with a damp rag.
Step7. Put the damp rag on the unit to cool
Step 8. Solder a jumper wire across the old
Step 9. Using a Dremel tool with a cut off disc,
make a cut in the foil to disconnect the diode.
After successful testing, coat the PBB with
silicone where you removed the epoxy.
Installing the New Capacitor
Doug Street has the best idea yet for a small
package for the new capacitor and diode that can be mounted somewhere on the frame . See Figure 2-9, CapDiode.jpg
