It is a 1541 but with a different plugs (1 on the SX and 3 on the 1541 apparently). Luckily the colour coding is the same so it can be modded easily enough.

Info I found was here http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=34460&sid=267d3c9bb9fa83953dcb71bf682fd1a6

I was lucky enough to find a replacement drive on the other bay which just needed some TLC to get it going again. Unfortunately the original does not seem to want to play ball anymore.

Would a 600 motherboard be a better idea? Being smaller and nearer to the size of a c64 motherboard?
