Well I have definitely don't have the skills for that. I will have to go back to my Blizzard 1230 mk4 as it has a working RTC with battery.

As I wrote, i'll simply plug in a battery-backed RTC unit in the motherboards clock-port.

In my experience, working with Workbench is a nightmare without a working clock. Constantly running into...

Ok then off it goes. Gonna be fun without a desoldering-device but i'm a patient man.

How do I do that? All I can do is check continuity with a multi-meter and tell you that the clock runs perfectly normal (not too fast or slow) while the Amiga is running for many many hours. Does...
