Makes sense. I have the pre-6545 one, for sure (along with the loopback connectors, and the plastic library case - a score from a long-defunct Commodore dealer). > In order for these to work, the CPU, zero page RAM, and > the video display must be working. Naturally. At home, I have tools like the Fluke 9010A that are very handy for debugging elementary stuff like stuck or shorted bus drivers, read/write of any address, etc., but again, not with me. > I also have some RAM and ROM test routines I have never uploaded. > These are modifications of the Commodore RAM and ROM test routines. Those sound quite useful. I have yet to power up either the 320008 static board or the 320251 dynamic board, but given how hacked-on the static board was, I'm expecting it not to come up the first time (among other issues, I received it with zero socketed parts and while I have a couple of Nicholas Welte's ROM/RAM boards, I have to fabricate a replacement for the video RAM and chargen ROM. Fortunately, the dynamic board is 100% intact, so I'm hoping it will just come up when I apply power. In case it doesn't though, I was scouring zimmers.net for diagnostics.
