RL02 Disk Cartridge Problems

  I am wondering if an accurate and technical description of the RL02
servo tracks and (maybe) a description of how they are actually applied
exists anywhere... the ultimate object being possibly modifying an
existing RL02 drive to write these tracks.

  Anyone with any concrete info regarding this?

  I modified a 5 1/4" floppy to write the special 'spiral' tracks used by
an old music sampler when the parent company went out of business... the
same problem existed as above, but in a different manifestation.

  If the writing heads width is the same, I am wondering if a drive
couldn't be modified to write servo tracks....?
