 Hi Glenn, 

 Long time. 

 Yea, it's the tricky AC/DC I am concerned about. 

 What about using MOV's, thought I read something about them not being
recommended to use anymore in boatanchors?

 I don't know of any article on doing this. However, it is a very
simple thing to do.
 Black wire goes first to the fuse and then to the off / on switch. If
no fuse, add one!
 White wire goes to unfused side of the power transformer. If there is
a fuse, it should be rewired in the black lead. If 2-fuses, remove
this one.
 Green wire goes directly to the chassis.
 Of course, this is with transformer powered units.
 If AC / DC, then things get "tricky" depending on if one side of the
AC line cord is connected to the chassis.

 I have read a couple of different ones in the past, but can't seem to
find any on data base searches. 

 Does anyone have a reference for this?
