[rescue] Will this work in my 3/140?

I got a line on a 501-1236 VME card. I've done some digging on the Sun
System Handbook, and I know that it's a SCSI card...which I need...the
question I have is whether this will work in my 3/140...it's not clear if
it was supported with the boards I have.
My 3/140 has a 501-1208 CPU card, and a 501-1132 4mb card. According to the
Handbook, the SCSI card that is listed with the 3/140 is 501-1138 or
501-1217 (or perhaps 501-1045, for the Sun 2 version). This is more
what I'd be interested in, since it's the listed part (I'm trying to
re-build the 3/140 pretty much as it was....or to re-construct it as a
3/110...it would be nicer to have the color graphics..) That would mean
I'd need a 501-1209 CPU board as well. But that's not available from this
Anyway, I need a SCSI adapter to get it running, so is the right card, and
will it work?
(it's gonna cost me $10 for packing and time plus shipping, so if someone
on the list has a better deal, I'm all ears......BTW, I'm also interested
in a Sun type 3 keyboard and mouse....if someone has one, I'm in the market...)
(BTW, the person with the parts is in the SF area, and has some other 3/2XX
parts...I can connect folks if anybody is interesting.....they're going
into the dumpster unless someone picks them up..) They also have 501-1153
ethernet card (though the 3/140 already has a ethernet AUI, so I've got no
need for that...)
p.s. Also, I'm wondering what the maximum amount of ram I can plug into
this (figuring that it's a single board solution.... unless there is one
that is a dual SCSI and memory card....)
