I also discussed two nonworking SFDs with Ruud recently, but in my case the
drives were fine, and the 6530s were dead.

Once a person sent me a 8250LP for repair, and it turned out that one R/W
head was bad. He then sent me a replacement drive that he said would fit, but
it was a 96tpi version of the drive, and of course it would not read 100tpi
disks. I put the 100tpi stepper into the 96tpi replacement drive, made a
complete adjustment and the drive works fine since then :-)
