I found the upgrade notes here:


The general upgrade tip is:

It sounds like it will take some fussing, but it fixes both FOR-555 and 
FOR-408, so it's definitely worth doing.

If anyone wants to take on this upgrade, let me know and I'll help you. 
Otherwise, I may try to look at it over the holiday break.
