5.25" Drives for PC Transporter + KB Adapter Details?

As i recall, the PC Transporter required weird, proprietary AE drives, but it has an MFM connector on it. Is it possible to use normal MFM drives on the thing? Also, is there a schematic for the 5.25" AE drives so that i can build them?

 

I could also use a schematic for the //e KB adapter. I had a PC Transporter in a standard //gs, but I am considering putting one in my //e->//gs system, as an aux way to use soe old DOS stuff. (Essentially, to save some space on my racks.)

 

I have the ColourSwitcher and all of the rest of the kit, but I do not have the //e KB adapter, nor the 5.25" drives. I am of course open to buying or trading for original kit if needed, but this stuff shouldn't be too complex to build on a breadboard.
