Actually I checked the right-side port on the 8296, I don't have an 8032-SK.
On normal machines the cassette port on the back side should be easily
accessible even by a DB25 connector housing, but I don't think this works
with the SK style left or right port.

I just compared my cassette port connector with a DB25 plug, and if the part
for the DB25 mounting screws is removed, it should fit well into all tape

I always buy such stuff at, or At
Kessler, search for "Comodore". Or Article number "UPS12", if you can't
reproduce their typo ;-)
