8550 Riser Hack

positioned to the side of the solder pad as I have it
because a plastic rib on the drive platform will
interfere if it is centered. The finished hack looks
like this- (original HERE).
Ed. Maybe a shot of hot melt glue to help keep the conductors from being pulled around and fatiguing the solder joint?

Warnings and recommendations:
Remember, the Mod. 50 power-supply (94W!!!) is known to have lesser power than assumed. If you'd already installed a -386/-486 upgrade, 64Megs of RAM, SCSI-adapter and a Hi-Resolution graphic board it will surely collapse.
