    On a Unix/Linux machine one could do

    objcopy -I ihex -O binary file.hex file.bin && cat file.bin | od -v -b -w8 -A none

    Unfortunately, objcopy can't output to stdout, so it can't be "piped"....

    I've never found necessary to "recap" a PET. The original electrolytics were always in good working order (tested with an HP RLC meter). I don't believe one can "give 40 years" of life to anything,...

    I agree with Dwight, it's far more easy for a capacitor to short than for a 7905 to fail, but all can happen anyway :)
    I'd check for shorts on the -5V rail before changing the regulator. Since your...

    Very strange fault. I would try with a different keyboard first (a VIC-20 one can do too), but it might be a bad 6526. If you have socketed 6526s, try swapping them.

    +1
    It's 10uF 16V tantalum with the three-legged - + - trick (I haven't seen them on non-IBM boards so far). You can check with a multimeter if there's any supply rail shorted on your ISA board...

    Yes, sorry, I should have mentioned that I also have the cardboard "dummy" insert. That releases the top head lifting mechanism, like when a normal floppy is inserted. Sorry, it's been a while since...

    The only "fix" that I've found is to never ever leave a 1571 door open, unless when extracting a disk (of course).
    It may take some time to find the correct amount of twist to correct it. Give too...

    The top head of a 1571 is lifted by only one side support. This causes after many years a little twist in the head orientation and it's not sitting flat against the disk surface anymore, plus isn't...

    If that's the ML monitor that was commonly used in the 1980's then I am almost sure it never supported labels, it's a direct assembler only. Back in the old days (and I do the same still nowadays...

    Yes if you have a Basic 2 PET (the ### at startup, would be Basic 3 in my scheme) it's normal.

    Well, yes, you should also look at pin 11 which is driven by the PET and compare with 9 which is the receive pin of the same line. However NDAC is handled by both UC6 and UC5, so you might try...

    I completely agree with Dave. It looks like a 510 ohms one, but I'd not take chances and just measure the twin one.
