I modified a 1.2 drive today (as "described" :-E ) . It was pretty easy, 
as far as I can tell... and it (still =-) ) works.

I used an SS443A (Honeywell). The magnet came from a very old 
"professional" (Hall-sensor) keyboard wreck (I could as well have used a 
regular magnet sold with Hall-sensors / Reed-relays, but there was 
little space around the drive motor so I had to use something smaller). 
Only thing to pay attention for, is the orientation of the magnet (as 
the sensor is unipolar). Other than that, it worked just on the first try.

Now only if putting together the SB-midi interface board that I have for 
next time, would go so flawlessly... ;-)
