Re: Swapping Lisa components

I've got a Lisa 2/5 with no external 5MB Widget with a faulty component on the power supply motherboard. This little 1.5"x1.5" blocky black thing with a yellow band on top that reeks like you wouldn't believe. (Some cracking on the band is visible as well) Any idea what component this is? If the modern equivalent is smaller, I don't mind soldering wires to make up the distance... I haven't found any Lisa board schematics explaining what components on the motherboard are yet, but was hoping someone here knows?

I'm hoping this is the only hurdle left, the monitor seems crisp but there is a garbled video signal (hopefully from the underperforming power supply). Everything looks great, even 2 memory boards installed. I just can't afford $200 for a 1.8A Lisa power supply, and want to solder/replace the equivalent on the board.
