Since we're on the subject of drive mechs, let me throw this problem on the list... I've got a sick 1571 mech. It's a newtronics mech, and SOMETIMES (not all the times) the spindle motor won't start up... on top of that, reading is very sporadic (probably I feel due to slightly varying spindle motor speeds). Anyone experience this problem before and know a fix for it? One thing I've noticed: This mech actually came out of a 128DCR. Around the floppy bay there is noticeable corrosion on the case. It's not horrible, but the floppy mech has some corrosion/rust on the metal bits. I suppose it could be that the electrolytic caps on the spindle motor board are contaminated or something.
