Hi all! Question for those of you that have installed a choke: how did you mount it? To the faceplate, or with standoffs? Did you do any extra ground wiring or just a simple replacement of one of the 270 5v?
Hey there! I used 25mm standoffs to mount the choke to the faceplate. Something like this: https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/693-9832.5200. Female end is screwed into the faceplate, and the holes for the choke's bracket go through the male ends of the standoffs and held in place with nuts. This can also be done with female-female standoffs too.
Yes, it is used to replace one of the 270 ohm 5W resistors. I also added a ground wire going from underneath one of the nuts to ground. For placement, most people mount it such that the screws for the standoffs are just behind the power transformer. You can see those 2 black screws in the back of my faceplate in my pictures a few posts ago. Those are for the choke standoffs.
Hope this helps!
