gpo706-


yes that grommet is very handy so it sits behind the mousehole as you say.  

i think the mousehole on a 500/302 is exactly the same.    

another question - brit phones this time. when i look at the wiring in my green gpo706 [!]  which has a newish line cord, there are 3 spade tipped wires - green yellow + black.  if i replace this flat-profile black cord with the type of round, 4 wire cord i've just put on the 302, which wire is equivalent to which? , and which will be the one to  leave unattached?  

cheers, david

See the instruction card in this ebay listing, it shows the proper connections post-conversion:

I got the same card with my kit from them, very handy to have as a reference... :)

And I can't help but noticed that whoever put that grommet on put it on backwards... :D

And for future reference, here's a picture of my copy of the instruction card, with the contact details left in place... :)

A "reverse grommet" how did that happen?

Anyhow nice to know the GPO cord fits snug into the mousehole, like the 500 series.

BTW - easy to get the grommet back the right way round, try and slip it off, or cut through the top with a blade to the cord depth and peel it away, then just re-attach and glue it back together.

Then you can align the cut part to underside of line cord to the phone so no one will see the split on it.
