To me that just looks like a pcb footprint that accommodates both sizes (DIP8 or DIP14), and they are interchangeable. If you have a multimeter, you can use the continuity test to check whether I'm...

Generally, those types of oscillators have 4 terminals in either a DIP8 or DIP14 form factor, and can be interchanged if you account for the form factor.

Did you fix the reset line? If it's floating, it can cause excessive power consumption in the input circuitry of chips relying on this signal. Also, your computer won't work properly.

IIRC, a lot of demoscene productions use this kind of interleaving for performance - basically you do stuff while waiting for a write to chipmem to complete.

I'm not sure.. Does an Amiga with an 030 have RTG? Even if it does, doing bytewise accesses over the Zorro bus to adjacent addresses will slow things down significantly compared to pairing the data.

My point was, don't go making mods/upgrades when troubleshooting, because they may cause additional issues, making it harder to diagnose.

There's plenty of options for 20 ohm @ 1W in 2512 package - they're even available as 3.5W.

I can't tell you what wattage the original A4000 part is though - that would require the OEM BOM.

the delay line does not set the clock speed, it skews the clock 90 degrees for the CLK90 signal - how much 90 degrees is, depends on the clock; for A3640/A4000 mobo (25MHz), it's 10ns.
