PCB Mounting Holes Wrong. PCB not same as in guide

 My 2nd input of the day.  I just discovered that the PCB I have is not that in assembly guide (for Basic kit).  My PCB has 3, 8-pin DIP ICs on top.  In addition, mounting holes wrong spacing.  I can drill new holes in baseplate, but how do I know the  board is compatible? Photo is attached.  Silkscreen is hidden under the 2, 3-connector jacks closest to power converter:  how do I find connection diagram?


*Correct- The pilot wire connects to the terminal in the diagram labeled "Pilot - IEC CP"

*Orange is to the inside, black to the outside.

*Not really H is for Hot and N is Neutral (or Hot 2). They are the exact same test circuit so it really does not matter.

I see the diagram; thanks.  Questions remain:

     * the build guide says "connect pilot to board."  But where:  I assume to the iec cp terminal, and not the "europe" terminal.  But for $187.25 I hate to assume...

     * I can find nowhere the orientation of the 4-pin GFCI plug.  Orange to outside, or orange to power block?

     * Is there significance to the "H" and "N" on the AC Line and AC Test connector blocks?


The basic kits have been upgraded to the latest board, the OpenEVSE v4. It is compatible with all kit versions. A diagram is located here:
