I acquired a Socket 7 motherboard not long ago.. Aside from a few missing capacitors, it also has a broken coil choke. It seems to me a ferrite bead of 12mm external 8mm diameter with a 12 loop copper coil around it..
I don't know how to determine (or guesstimate) the rating of this part, where to source it, and whether there are any suitable modern replacement component types for it as this type of component seems to be rather rare in supply and totally not used on newer parts (so something else must be used in its place?)
Can someone advise me on what to replace this with?
