The 1540 / 1541 / VIC-1541 was offered in numerous configurations - please review the options below and contact us if you have any questions!

Base Kit

The Base Kit contains the small, radial caps used on most 1541 drives

Power Supply Axial Caps:

The 4700uF axial cap is found on most 1541 drives. Early drives contain a 10,000uF axial cap, later contain a 6800uF axial cap.  Axial caps are offered separately from the base kit to suit the preferences of the buyer.  We offer Nichicon, Vishay, and Illinois axial caps.

Motor Control PCBs:

The ALPS motor control PCB uses 3x 10uF axial capacitors.  The Newtronics mechanisms have 2 different configurations (7 cao and 4 cap revisions).  Like the larger Axial caps, these are offered as optional add-ons.
