No to the cases. Yes to the PCBs and cables. I have 1/2 a tub of Model F PCBs from XT to F122.

well crap! the pcbs and cases of the XT and 5291 surfboard can be swapped between the two in case you didnt know! so if youve got some bricked XT's but still have the 5291 pcbs you can do something with those :D

awesome! before you power it on cross-reference the schematic here http://www.kbdbabel.org/schematic/kbdbabel_doc_ibm5291_kbd.pdf with what i have listed in the repo I triple checked my wiring but i could have gotten something wrong, so please make sure everything is correct before plugging it in.
