BBC Micro

I picked up two BBC computers yesterday. The Micro apparently had the power board removed and has some loose wires inside.

It also had this loose inside:

The Master is in better condition as it at least works.

No idea what voltage the "Ram Disc" uses. Not going to have much use for a Teletext Adapter either :P

Image

It had this cable inside which I've since removed. An unfinished extension lead for the "RS 423" port (I have no idea what that is) apparently. I don't know if this is normal or not. I'm guessing not.

Image

Also came with this mystery cable. Some sort of home-made adapter for the user port it seems, but I'm not sure what the point of it is.

Image

Would like some info on the "Morley Electronics" Ram Disc if anyone knows anything.

Is it possible that the BBC B came from a Torch Z80 pack?, that particular expansion did not require the internal BBC power supply but did need several internal cable connections going to various points on the motherboard. It could also be the age old power supply failure due to the X2 capacitors blowing up.
