This is a great list and saved my bacon initially! I have been refurbishing my wife’s universal 1 for her printing business and this was a great place to start. Due to the obsolescence issues I have been developing a power carriage based on the schematic which I also had to redraw into a modern circuit diagram. The frequency of relays degrading was a quick easy fix using 110AC DPDT 10AMP relays. I used OMRON MY2N-J AC110 relays in place of the DOSX-7T relays and they have been working fantastically and should last longer then the old ones. Next task is identifying modern contactors. Don’t know if this information is useful to anyone or if anyone has advice on new contactors but thanks for the list here!
