I just added a $20 Atari 800 with a few cartridges and cassette to my collection. Anything I should do before first power up? The previous owner has had it in her basement for 20 years. :)

During the once-over and quick cleaning I see that pin 10 on the SIO port is gone. This is definitely an unusual connector.

Can anyone recommend a source for replacing this connector? I'm sure I can jury rig something with a piece of heavier gauge solid wire but if these are available somewhere I'd rather just install a new one.

Thanks!
