I can't find my scanned copy of the HP 1000 power supply manual which
has the details, but think the specified resistor plug value is
something 820, not 1K. In practice that difference might not matter.

On the 21MX "B" type power supplies the Battery Chager Board
(5061-1348) plugs into an empty slot on the power supply motherboard,
but the Battery Backup Board (5061-1349) replaces the Jumper Board
(5061-1351). I don't have a Jumper Board to look at and I can't find
the right manual with the schematic of the Jumper Board but I'm pretty
sure it has some components on it and the power supply would not
operate if neither it nor the Batter Backup Board were installed.
