Props to you for being persistent & reaching your goal - It's a great feeling when you fix your own bike.

Learning the principles of operation of the various devices will give you a foundation for future maintenance or repairs. Investment in learning almost always pays off in the present & the future.

Good on you...
Thanks very much IXL2. You had a lot to do with reaching my goal.
I appreciate your comments and your thoughtful replies and suggestions.

Thanks Brucstoudt!
Believe me when I say there were weak moments where I came very close to pulling the trigger on a brand new DGV-5000 and throwing this old stuff in a box. And I may still do so, one of these days, now that I have all the original stuff working... at least for now anyway.
