I have just obtained an old Hektor III open university computer from 1983. Does anyone have a manual for this. Also it did not come with a power supply, so if you have the schematic then this would be usefull

I have a Hektor III but it has a different ROM O/S from the one I used on my OU course. This ROM doesn''t give access to BASIC. Has anyone experienced this and indeed does anyone have a copy of the original ROM?
