The Skene diagram shows the diodes.  I physically located them in the wire lines at the SSR, but that is just moving them to the distal end of the lines.  A diode hook up looks like the one on page 15

I am ok with soldering, and that is a simple connection.  Brianl crimped everything if I understood him.  While the PID thread above is long, it is helpful for understanding and installation.  You can ignore the part about adding heat with brew, though that is an option for Silvia as well, but then you need the 1/16 2 alarm PID and it does not have the nice box and under the top of Silvia.  The savings in DIY is making up the wires.  Once you have wires made up you have to install similar to the kit.

A few helpful internet sites and you might look before ordering.  You can use a 1/16 PID and side box, YMMV.

You will be making these if DIY and a couple with diodes for steam.

Thx. :)  

I'll give these a good read today from start to finish.  I use my Silvia daily and rely on it for hot water hence the PID being important.  I'd also like to get the PID installed so I am familiarized with it once I install a new rust proof frame later on.

Didn't your old thread have a lot of this information?

Happy to help, but I am not sure where you are going, not understanding or wanting other advice?
