After checking the schematic I find that there is a link. "Use L1 for 1K
RAM, use L2 for 2K RAM." This tells me that when a 4118 or two 2114s are
used (or a 6116???) there is no need to change the jumper -- it's only
required when using a 2KB 2016 or equivalent.

Wow -- did you ever use the kit?

I'd guess this is the same as the 2016, and that you need to change the
link to L2 for it to work.
