No, but I've seen some PC 360k drives have similar head assemblied and even
connectors. I tend to put these ones up in the loft in case I'm desparate
enough to have to try swapping heading assemblies from the PC to a 1571. The
1.2MB heads would probably not work because of the smaller write gap that
seems to cause problems on a PC let alone a 1571.
