You can replace single pins in the US IIi CPU connector. Once I got a US
IIi with dead cache and one with broken pins on the connector. I
transplanted intact pins from the broken CPU into the connector of the
working CPU. The resulting "Franken 5" served me as my primary router
for years and is still in occational use.
