Tape drive help?

        In the interests of getting an old DEC PDP-11 running, I've got an STC
9-track tape drive here, a model 2921. This is, apparently, one of the rare
few that StorageTek (aka, STC/Telex) manufactured with a Pertec interface
vs. their own.

        Based on conversations with a company that still maintains these old
beasts, it appears that the CPU card has gone bad. I'd like to at least try
and confirm this by swapping said card with a known-good one.

        So... anyone own a 2921 that they don't mind it being used as a guinea
pig? ;-)

        Thanks in advance.
