For a 5500, we have the following bits'n'pieces:
CPU M7637 (part 50-19845-01)
I/O board M7638 (part 50-20145-01)
Memory board M7639 (part 50-20152-01)
KZQSA M5976 (part 50-20359-01)
CXY08 M3119 (part 50-18096-01)
??? board M9715
The KZQSA is a extra SCSI controller, and the CXY08 is an 8-port serial
board. The "??? board" has a bunch of resistors and not much else on
it - I'd guess it's a discrete (!) SCSI or DSSI terminator. The same
memory board is used for both 32MB and 64MB boards - for the 32MB board
the front half is pretty much emtpy.

You appear to be looking for an inefficient space heater :-)
