Did it require major > surgery to the 1541 to be fitted? One of the VIAs in the 1541 has a completely unused 8-bit data port. (Some bits of it are used by the 1541C and maybe 1541-II for an optical track 0 sensor.) Anyway, check which of the VIAs has nothing connected to pins 2-9 and connect a flat ribbon cable to those pins. If I remember correctly, pin 2 was bit 0 and pin 9 bit 7. Connect the other end of the cable to the C64's user port contacts PB0-PB7. That's it. Marko
