Does setting that jumper cause them to write double-tracks,
then (as ISTR that the HD drives wrote tracks that were
half-width, and someone used to sell a software package
that wrote an HD-width track, stepped the head, then
wrote an adjacent HD-width track to create pseudo-DD

Hey, precisely what jumper is that?
