It may be, Russ. The 2X came toward the end of Kaypro's 8-bit production
and they were not exactly 'purebred'. In some cases they contained both
modem and realtime clock which they inherited from the 4/84. In others
those were absent as denoted by the unpopulated area on the right hand
side of the motherboard. Still the same basic etch, just not fully
populated. Generally, if the modem was present, the jack was identified.

They really did not exist. Kaypro distributed a rather generic User
Guide that dated back to the early machines, and application specific
volumes for the bundled software and operating system.

What are you looking for, I may be able to help.
