Congratulations on your win.
In addition to what Joe posted, you should change the Schaffner input
filter/selector. Going through my notes, I am pretty sure I got the
replacement from Digikey, PN# 817-1167-ND. I think the voltage selector
inside has different voltages than the original and the original one can be
swapped into it. It is not necessary to get it to work. It is just a matter
of 220V -vs- 230V IIRC.
The input cable connector part numbers were listed here
I have the complete set of cables that came with the 7061 plus an
additional cable from ebay. I can take some pictures for you to get an idea
of how they were made.
KO4BB has some good downloads regarding some modifications to the 7081.
David Partridge (another volt-nut) has a web page describing some repairs
