I recently purchased an IBM Model F XT on eBay without a working cable. I'm attempting a Soarer's XT to USB conversion but I'm unable to find any pinouts for this 10-pin connector on the board's controller.

Can anybody help me sort out which of these 10 pins correspond with Vcc, Ground, Data, and Clock?

Much thanks!

here is a photo which shows wiring to a teensy2.0

from top to bottom, only 1, 3, 4 and 5 are used and they belongs to the lower row of pin on the blue socket.

hope this help.

Thank you for the quick response and helpful picture! That was the last bit of information that I needed to get my Soarer's converter up and running :D I'm now typing on my Model F!
