I'm doing this to overcome the diode drop of the protection diodes I'm installing this weekend. When at full load I want this to result in 50 vdc output.
There is an expected sum total diode drop of almost 4 vdc. (if my calculations are correct). If not I'll just do this mod and tune the supplies to the output required to accomplish 50 vdc at max load.
I'm replacing the oem pot shown in the pictures below with a Panasonic 2K Ohm pot p/n: P3Y202CT-ND available here.
If you decide to attempt to do this...be sure to use a fair amount of flux. Make sure that you have the two pads that are on the same side heated evenly before you attempt to lift the pot or you will probably tear the solder pad and it's trace off of the circuit board!
You have been warned! Take your time, and make sure you follow this advice.
