Capacitors Mac Classic 2

Does anyone has schematics for a Mac Classic 2?  I was changing leaking capacitors but the machine is very old, but a soldering cap went off the board, I can't solder there anymore... If anyone knows where the positive side of capacitor C9 connects...  I could put a wire.

The positive side can be connected to the small trace just below the pad, or to R29 (on the other side of the board)

I have changed all the capacitors on the board.  It did boot, then freezes, then back to the big vertical black/white bars.  Anyone have any idea?

Re: Capacitors Mac Classic 2

probably related to the EGRET chip (upper right part of the board) that is surrounded by capacitors, either the chip is still covered with goo or a trace is damaged in the neighborhood.
