I have two Sun-3/260. Some of the associated boards have suffered
physical damage, and in one case it was exactly that - a cracked SIP
resistor pack.

That board now has a substitute resistor soldered onto the foil side of
the board, and as far as I can tell it works Just Fine now, provided
you're careful to leave the slot next to it empty (the resistor sticks
out far enough into the next slot's space to interfere physically).
