Just wanted to confirm a few things before I make the removal of the suppressor on my VAX 121:

The suppressor has 2 black wires going to it which appear to feed the motor.
it also has 2 blue wires which go to the switch.

Is removal of the suppressor just a matter of cutting the 4 wires and connecting a blue wire to a black wire?
Because there are 2 blue wires coming from the switch, does it matter which of the black wires each are connected to?

Many thanks in advance....

I'd like to see a clarification of this answer too.
I've also got a stalwart Vax 121 that looks like it's suppressor has gone phut!
Replacement is proving hard to track down so would like to bypass the suppressor to check it's not something else (there's no other signs of other component failure at first glance of the machine)
