Mike, nice find! Which also illustrates the first rule of thrift shopping:
Before passing up anything, always open the case! You never know what rare
and desirable stuff lurks inside that battered and forlorn looking Apple II
/ Atari 800 / Coleco ADAM / etc. Any collector worth his or her salt should
never go on an expedition without a pocket tool containing an assortment of
screw and socket drivers.

Anyway, I think I have an Atari disk drive service manual at home. I'll
check tonight and get back to you.
