8550 Riser Hack
From David L. Beem who can't
open the POD bay doors for me...
I trimmed the clear plastic (darker center area of the riser)
around my solder pads & scraped the insulator coating away with a knife
(Looks like THIS).
Tinned up the leads & solder pads liberally to put them in place.
The red 5 volt conductor should be positioned to the side
of the solder pad as I have it because a plastic rib on the drive platform
will interfere if it is centered. The finished hack looks like this- HERE

Warnings and recommendations:
Remember, the Mod. 50 power-supply (94W!!!) is known to have
lesser power than assumed. If you'd already installed a -386/-486 upgrade,
64Megs of RAM, SCSI-adapter and a Hi-Resolution graphic board it will surely
