Hello Liam, You could try prlink, a program written by me and Olaf Seibert. It will do the transfer, but you will need to solder a cable that connect's the PET's user port to the PC's printer port and to type in a BASIC program to the PET so that the transfer program can be downloaded from the PC. If you had a PET disk drive that is compatible with the 1541 format, you could use e.g. Star Commander to read the disk in a 1541 connected to the PC's printer port.

Subscribers of the list could help you further.
