Apple eMac Logic Card Bad Cap Locations

This was an email from Marty S., who wrote, "Just wanted to let you know that there are bad caps on Apple G4 eMac logic boards. There were 5 different models, and I think there were only slight differences between the logic boards. The one in the photo is Apple part # 820-1591-A, from a 1.25 GHz system. Needs 5 units of 1000 uF 16v, and 8 units of 1800 uF 6.3v. One happy aspect that these are pre-RoHS machines, which means you can actually get the failed caps out without a struggle."

Thank you Marty for the information, and the insight about the standard solder. I have the high quality, low ESR cap kits available for sale at
