I deleted it. Although the post didn't break any specific rules it was a bit suspect. Either A.I or copied directly from a service manual

Sounded much more like AI than service manual to me. Thought it was a bit strange that someone would ask something like that to ChatGPT or similar, them paste it into a forum. Takes all kinds! It sounded like those auto AI generated eBay descriptions that make a broken old 40 channel radio sound like the ultimate personal communications device.

Nothing exciting, A new user who's posts looked like they were copied from a service manual, Possibly a bot, He has now been removed from the premises :D
