Yes, I'm finishing rebuilding the PM6685 from a couple of part units, 
then I'll try to use the GPIB card as is, but since the service manual 
specifies clearly that the GPIB ROM FW version must match the mainboard 
ROM FW version I do not expect it to work, as the current GPIB ROM is 
clearly marked "9626/80 V1.12C", so it is likely specific for the 6680 
and there is probably a SW check for the correct ROM version at power-
on.

Regards,
  Claudio
