Here's a technical challenge for you engineering types out there.. How WOULD you answer this question?

"Hey guys, I have a B614 device that I'm trying to refurbrish. Does anyone know how to cut away the pbx9402 jacket to replace the core material then bond the thing back together? Also, I need to forge an AMAC signal to the cat F PAL system or otherwise another way to feed a strong enough pulse frequency so I can bypass the ENDS to activate the device."

I'd answer it by calling the FBI and reporting you for having a nuclear weapon. Unless you gave me lots of money and enough time to move half way around the world.

Obviously, the answer to nearly any question that contains this wording is... "yes".

Note that the rest of what you quoted is not a question.

yeah....b614 machines sound a bit hardcore....http://amaec.kicet.re.kr/cd_astm/PAGES/B614.htm

...might as well ask about how to make heavy water using a 6v lantern battery, some Silver Oxide Kodak Photo paper, and a dead Marmot.

You can dremmel away most of the pbx9402 until close, then use a scalpel knife to carve out remaining. Before repalcing the core material, you may want to put a little arctic silver near the contacts and the bulge in the middle over the power source to help with heat issues. Then replace the core material (over top of the arctic silver in those locations...make sure AS has dried first of course), but be careful near the lead ends as you don't want it to seep down enough to cover the contact.

Dump the F PAL and get a student kit FPGA from Xylinx, then find any one of the million opensource PPC designs on the net to burn into the FPGA. Then install an embedded linux which will allow you to reburn with proper microcode for the device (PM me for a copy if you can't find online). Once you've switched to the FPGA, the pule frequency problem is no longer an issue, as the FPGA filters the 60Hz by default.

Whatever a B614 is, I don't know, but my theory is just buy a new one.

I say put a few pounds of C-4 in it and make it go boom.

If you can't fix it, blow it up, since it was not worth fixing in the first place.

King termite's got it, but the FPGA's just never work for me. Last time I had this problem I just used the typical CrytOx from FDW-0183 to finish the job.
