There were minor circuit differences between my 544 and Omni-C blankers.
The Omni-C blanker did not work nearly as well. I set the schematics
side-by-side and made the Omni-C correspond. Seems it was more like minor
rewiring but it has been a looooong time ago (and I've slept since then). I
do recall that it was an easy project -- probably not taking more than an
hour of a lazy man's time. I can dig out the manuals and send schematics
and images of the physical board layout (components, but not the traces).
If I had the gumption, I could pull the boards and scan the traces, I
I would guess that Ten-Tec would give their blessing to your effort.
