But I have no choice. The processor was modified with an improvised
API, and half of this was later removed (leaving the processor useless)

Also, an IPB (Inter-Processor Buffer) was made,
which connected it to a NORD-1, a not-quite-mini, not-quite-mainframe
machine. This has also, of course, been removed.

The CPU and IO planes, are, in short, FUBAR.

I have complete documentation of the wires, and of module locations,
they are all documented clearly in F-77 Maintenance Manual (which
you have on your site). They are easy to read, and give a complete
schematic of both the backplane, and the module locations.

There is 0% chance as is.
