SE/30 Logic Board Has "Bong Loop" Syndrome...


I have an SE/30 logic board, which I have recapped. However, it seems to be stuck in a reboot loop, bonging about once per second.

Anyone have any ideas? I suspect a rotted trace somewhere, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel by testing a million traces, so if anyone can tell me EXACTLY which ones could be causing the problem, I'll attempt a repair.



Main Macs: Early '09 Mac Pro, Mid '12 MacBook Pro 13"
Secondary Macs: Early '08 Mac Pro, Mid '12 MacBook Pro 15"
Playthings: Mac SE/30, 3.0 GHz Mavericks-based HackServe, Many others....
Desired: Lisa, Kanga PowerBook G3, Apple IIc, Apple II, Spare parts, etc.
