Default Brenell MK5 Gold Finish with Meter

Hi, I need help with the machine above. I took it apart to change the Hunts caps but forgot to take photos now I don't know if I connected it up right ! The unit I was working on has a meter NOT the magic eye. I also have a magic eye version and when I took it apart to compare the wiring is different ! So I need a close up photo of the component side under the front panel so I can see If I connected it up right before power on. Please see pics.

Thanks.Click image for larger version

A real shame no photos taken.

Magic Eye version but a couple of photos in Post 115 of my Brenell Thread.

Thanks David, I will take a look. One of the main reasons I did not take a photo is because I thought both units would be exactly the same, how wrong I was.

Thanks,

Harvey.

If they are both the original Gold finish Mk. 5 then I would have thought that they should be basically the same apart from the Magic Eye/meter circuitry differences. My Mk. 5 had a number of extra low value capacitors fitted (not shown on the schematic) possibly for noise suppression.
