Yeah, I was also thinking that the clock might present a snag; one way
to find out I guess. FWIW I've replaced clocked RAMs in a R-S M100 with 
an ordinary 62256, ignoring the clock signal, and that worked without any
glitches. Time to heat up the soldering iron I guess and maybe revive a
dead PET while I'm at it. 

Thanks for the chat and the PCB layout!

I'm looking at this schematic:

I think you're original idea would work, *assuming* pin 16 does not 
matter.  If the ROMS need to clear off the bus on PHI2 inactive and the 
SELECT lines don't handle that, then you'll have issues.

They print fine for me here (they do print as black, though), but here's 
a white background version:

No, it was fun to lay it out, and I'm happy to run a batch, but I know 
this group likes to tinker, so I'm happy just uploading the images and 
the EAGLE files and moving on.
