The connectors are 6pin for the stepper, 3 pin for the spindle motor and 4 pin for the WP sensor. The latter two mount onto the 7 pin header CN4. The one in my 1541C with 1541A board says: "D500 S/N70150371". It is equipped with the track 0 sensor and therefore the 15 pin plug carries 9 cables instead of the usual 6 ones. Otherwise it is very similar to the 1541-II one. I don't want to open up my 1541 with Newtronics drive and 1541A board, but that one has the upper WP sensor mounted on a plastic mount that extends from the front bezel. The above mentioned 1541C and 1541-II drives use a little PCB that is installed to the drive mech itself. So there are many variants of the D500 drive, but I don't see how to distinguish them just by the model number or the label information. > Could you also look for the model number on the Chinon?

The connectors are 6 pin for the stepper and 5 pin for the spindle motor and WP sensor. This leaves pin 1 and 2 of CN4 empty, they aren't even installed in this drive.
