I hope they didn't go astray somehow. Hopefully Monday they arrive.

Got the chip today...  checked the data sheet for pin 1 location - plugged the chip in.  Powered the system up...  The handset came up as expected!  Pressed East & West - the AZ drive moved.  Pressed North & South - the Dec drive moved!  I think we're fixed!!

 

I still have to re-assemble everything and test it all as a system but I have VERY HIGH hopes!
