Hello again,

Yes, it turned out the 3040 and 8050 power supplies are identical.

After a while I found out the random floppy disk I was using for
testing purposes was in poor condition, so I tried another disk.
Eventually I managed to read 1541 formatted disks on almost all
of these floppy drives, although they still natively use DOS 1.

It means what I two days ago thought was trash, turns out to be
four mostly working dual floppy drives. I haven't yet looked into
the daughterboard issue to upgrade them, but it is a big step

Best regards

Anders Carlsson
