The Source is a CoCo3.
So far I have found several sources of the CoCo3 Service Manual with the
schematic scanned at 1 PIXEL per INCH, completely useless!
My paper CoCo3 Service Manual is MIA in some box under many other boxes.
I found one that is readable at 2 bits / Inch.
Page 104 shows the H-Sync and V_Sync coming out of IC 15 which appears
to be simple inverters. 74LS04 in the parts list.

If the monitor is in requirement of a composite sync signals (as some do), and the sync signals are both negative and they are both coming from open collector outputs or TTL type outputs with pull-ups you can tie them together to create a composite sync signal. TTL negative logic signals can be tied together to logically OR them without even using a gate. Some older monitors I have seen use composite sync as a separate signal and others I have seen combine the composite sync with the green video signal.
