Ah, you do not know the secret!
Tape a piece of nonconducting wood, foam or rubber along the top edge of the CRT (to prevent shorts). Install the CPU board horizontally, so its lower edge sits on top of this insulator. The two screws that normally mount the CPU board still go in the vertical brackets.
You'll find that the cables are barely long enough so with careful routing you can still plug them in. Now you can easily get at both sides of the board to probe things, change parts, etc.
I would not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum. -- Frances Willard
