    Just a slight comment, clarification. The small white wire coming from the PT going to the indicator lamp will be able to stay since it is so short and really cannot be routed any other way correct?

    Maybe just tucked away a bit better.

    Just flick it down to run as low on the chassis as possible

    Keep going!
    Can you route your red/black heater wires from the PT to V5 in the far corner of the chassis (hard against the side and back).

    Neikeel,

    I can check and see if there is enough slack to reroute them, otherwise I might be able to use some of my own red-black wire to do it.

    I completely messed up and did not catch I ordered and installed a voltage selector switch instead of an impendeance selector switch. I ordered the correct one yesterday and will install it when it arrives, talk about a face palm moment when I saw that!

    You can do both but I would go for the red line, that keeps all AC well away from any signal wires.

    OK, sounds good but that one area is going to be very crowded but I can make it happen.

    Thanks again.

    Well I am at the point were I dropped the board into the chassis and am starting to wire everything up.

    one thing I do not like are the instructions on wiring the inputs.

    On page 32 of the instruction manual, the wire closet to the edge of the board goes to the bottom terminal of the top input. The wire to the right of that wire goes to the top terminal of the same input.

    On page 22 of the instruction manual. It appears to show that the wire closest to the edge of the board goes to the top terminal of the input, and the wire next to it goes to the bottom terminal of the same input.

    I am not sure if it matters in the end but I wired it according to the picture on page 22.

    That looks correct.
