Obviously you know not how the part works. I used to put sectors down on
floppies with physical skew for CPM using 765/9266/37C65. It was dirt
When the 765 and clones write they want CHRN, All you need to do is make
R the sector number what ever you want it to be then feed it to the FDC
doing a format track. What's difficult about that?
