Does anyone make or sell a breakout adapter to run an MS9 in a Blast City? It would be a female 15-pin AMP UP that breaks out to JST connectors for video, power and degauss. I know people run MS9's in Blasts, but I'm not sure how they accomplish it. I'm considering making the adapter myself and could make a few more if there's demand.

Surely you can't swap an MS-293x series chassis with an MS9? Maybe if you had the yoke as well..

They way they wire up is different but the wiring in the same, I moved a MS-2930 from a blast to my neo candy but kept the wiring from the monitor and joined it to the corresponding outputs that the old tube used. Might be more confronting in a blast though with its extensive wiring...

2930 and 2931 yoke inductance measurements are identical to MS9, so no need to swap yokes. It can be done, just need to break out the AMP UP.

EDIT: Obviously you lose VGA, but CGA and EGA are supported.
