Boy, I'm so glad that is settled. Now I know how to identify any 5.25"
mech just by the color of the faceplate and soldermask on the pcb.

Wow. Why didn't I ever think of that?

Until this moment, I've been using silly things like model numbers,
testing, and something no one has yet mentioned:

        The step rate marked on the stepper in degrees. Sometime this
can yield a clue.

The beige faceplate on 360K is yellower than on 1.2M

360K has jumpers for drive 0,1,2,3; 1.2M has jumpers for A,B

360K has a screen that is usually white on black; 1.2M has a screen that
is white on blue. (If it bluescreens, then the drive is a 1.2M)
