I got hold of a damaged disk drive for my ][e, it appears to have suffered a fall from a great height as the case was dented, the disk rotating flywheel and bearing had dropped out and the pcb mount had snapped off of it's mounts to the casting.
These are all rectifiable but the head drive stepper motor appears to be seized solid - which seems very odd for a stepper motor.
The spiral disk that drives the head is a press fit onto the shaft of the motor.
Anyone taken this apart?
Anyone know where I could find another stepper?
(I know these disks are pretty cheap on ebay, but in the UK they are hard to find and US shipping is megabucks!)
