[vcf-midatlantic] Mac IIci, dead after power on

I have two IIci's with Astec supplies. I recapped both and I guess I didn't clean them enough because both do this funky on/off thing like the power-on-circuit is oscillating. I'd just love to bypass it and use a toggle switch and be done with it.

    Of all things I think it has a GE power supply. Like a refrigerator.
    I had a double take on it. Eat your heart out Delta, this thing is juiced 
    from the light bulb & locomotive people.
