    Speedotron 102 or 105 schematic anyone? I need it!

    I got this light off Ebay , It was called a 102a quad on Ebay. It worked well the first day and on the second day #2 quit flashing. When I touched the light there was a sharp zap of good ole 120V ac.
    I took it out of service and acquired a new trigger coil and capacitor for it. Well~ Look what I found inside it.

    Turns out there is no such thing as a 102 quad, Some person a stuffed the gutted parts of a 105 into a 102 body and an EXTREMLY sloppy job of it. This thing is full of cold solder joints , the trigger coils and caps are mounted on perf board in a hap hazard way, the HV lines have burns through the insulation due to it getting touched by the side of a solder iron. The list goes on.

    I am lucky it did not short out and blow something apart. High Voltage with High Currant is VERY DANGEROUS and requires careful construction.

    So now I have to not only rebuild but also reconstruct this light.

    PS I am old school HAM and have build a fair share of HV power supplys for tube amps. I cant find a Speedotron 102 or 105 schematic though.
