I remember 3 SIPs in my drives and since I don't have any at hand to
test this is from memory, but they were special resistors with a Vcc
and GND on each end and the middle pins were pulled up with 220 ohms
and pulled down with 330 ohms in each SIP, not one SIP for pullup and
one SIP for pulldown.

I still have a baggie of them since they are specifically for SCSI termination.
