I have an idea that IC4 was a 1K*8 RAM (1K byte) possible a 4118. IC4a and IC4b were 1K*4 RAMs so you needed 2 for the 1K bytes. I think they were 2114 chips, a device that I regard as being 'change it if you get odd symptoms', the 2114 is possibly the most unreliable IC I've ever seen. A given board would have one or the other type of RAM, I think the pair of 2114s is a lot more common.
