    I used a 1590c to rehouse a Russian BassBalls. There's no room for a battery, and I changed a switch to make everything a little tighter, but it worked and I still have it. The lone pot in the Bassballs (the other two pots are trimmers made external) was huge, it might present a challenge getting all three to fit in a convenient way.

    Have you had a chance to look inside the box? I'll tell you what I would expect to see based on my rehouse.

    The 3 pots and footswitch mounted to a brass plate just below the top of the box. Mounting arms extend from the brass plates to a circuit board with board mounted in and output jacks. The circuit board is just the right size to fit into that Hammond box, And the depths of the c size box allows you to mount the circuit board below the switches and pot.

    Drilling of the input output jacks is critical, it needs to be high enough to not hit the bottom plate but low enough that it won't get interfered with by the pots and switches.
