Amiga 1200...board revisions question / wire link modification question

Hi All,
My first post on EAB, and a new thread to boot! I'm on Amibay also, but seems to be a lot more technical traffic here (I've been a short term lurker LOL)

Recently got back into the Amiga, and have just acquired a crazy amount of hardware!

This post covers something I'm sure has been covered to death...a quick search didn't reveal a compact answer for me. I now have 8 A1200 boards. I intend to recap 6/8 (I've recapped the first I got already, and the 7th I think has a faulty floppy controller chip or component).

My question.....most are revision 1d.4 boards, but I also have a 1d.3 and 2B. I'm going to keep 2 (One will be using the Individual ACA1232, the other a Phase 5 68060/PPC240Mhz) and refurbish / onsell the rest. Since I've recapped and done the timing fix on a 1d.4, Ill keep that, but I'm wondering if there is any benefit to keeping either the 1d.3 or 2B? Any thoughts?

Also, I came across a unique modification on one of the 1d.4 boards, I'm hoping someone can identify its purpose (I'm just too curious!). Its a wire link between a SMD resistor just above Budgee and adds an inline resistor connecting to an SMD resistor beside the electrolytic cap underneath the serial port. Any ideas

Thanks BigFan....an interesting link, even if it doesnt totally satisfy my curiosity!

I think Ill just keep the 1d.4 and the 2B...provided I can get the 2B stable with the ACA!
