Reply to "Can I swap PS2 tenders on an old style 5 volt board with a newer 3V board?"

for others who look at this post down the road....

It has been my experience (limited as it is) that MTH has changed wiring at different times on models. I would always recommend doing wire tracing even on similar models and their tenders.  Even on newer PS3 diesel models I have worked on, the wiring is different on different releases. This is a problem when installing sound sets and the lighting functions are changed. It is obvious for safety that swapping tenders is a big no no.

 I have swapped out tenders several times. Each and every time, I have traced the wiring. I have replacement tethers that have thicker yellow and white wires designed for the motor connection. Yet I have had to swap out the wiring to utilize these wires in their properly designed place.
