Here is the website that I used to guide me through the modification process on my 706MKIIG:

http://www.qsl.net/k5eph/706.htm

This website has good pictures, and good instructions.  The biggest danger you face is not in damaging your 706MKIIG running on 60M, but rather, damaging it while doing this mod.  The surface mount diode in question is VERY tiny.  

Good luck and 73

Why of course!  They want to sell you another radio!
The mod they sent me was for MARS, but it involved full TX on 1.8-30 MHZ and above.  The only caveat, which is standard, is that the warranty doesn't cover damage resulting from a mod done by the owner. Seriously, take care and have fun.  It's certainly a matter of indivdual choice.
