This may sound silly but is the SS2 CPU socketed? Many aren't. Weitek makes
(or made) a tool to remove and install the CPU's.

I have a couple of them here new in box :) Neat geek toys, Er, I mean tools

Subject: [rescue] Weitek PowerUP CPU

    Does anyone know how to install the Weitek PowerUP chip?  I have been
trying to pry the existing Sun processor out of an SS-2 for about 20 minutes
now with no headway (other then bending one of my knives).  Is there a tool
I need to pry the existing chip out?
