View Full Version : Found C=1541 drive Newtronics head

3rd November 2012, 09:22
I'm looking for working (not shorted) head from a bad 1541 drive to my good drive with bad head. I can use two pieces as I have two drives.

You can measure resistance with a multimeter on the head as you can see on the attached picture: 25-35ohm between red/blue lines, 10-15ohm between black/yellow lines on a good head. You don't have to disassembly the whole drive to check, remove only top case.

Thank you guys.

Heads has arrived, all good thanks!
As heads are for Alps drives they did not fit in Newtronics drive but I'm trying to take apart the head and changing the electronics only.
