Hi, I have an SFD-1001 which has the same problem. I knew about it because I have seen an article on the web about an SFD-1001 repair, so I dismounted mine and have seen the leaked capacitors. I have replaced all of them but the drive doesn't spin up at all... So far I had no time to troubleshoot it further but it is in my plans to repair it. I remember it was a bit difficult to unsolder the head's cable.

You all know the Matsushita JU-570(-2) disk drives that are used in CBM 8250lp, SFD-1001 and 8296-d. Some of these JU-570 drives went through my hands in the last weeks. All of them had damaged drive motor PCBs, caused by leaking electrolyte capacitors. I assume that all JU-570 drives are affected by this problem. You may take a look at http://forum.classic-computing.de/index.php?page=Thread&threadID=7382 where I described the problem. In german, but the pictures should tell anything.
