Needed: 1 IBM 8" alignment disk.

What you describe doesn't appear to me to be an alignment issue. Whether
the drive is in or out of radial alignment, the appearance of the data will
change as the relative position of head to track changes. I'd suspect index
alignment if the thing doesn't find the first sector on a track. On the
other hand, if it doesn't ever find a sector address mark, it's also
possible that the controller has a hardware flaw.

Have you tried this controller with a drive that works? Have you tried this
drive with a computer that works? Since I'm not familiar with the hardware
you're using, and since I'm not anywhere which would make sending you a
candidate drive possible if I even have one, I can't suggest much.
