Hi Joe
 The 900 series have a different connector for the cable.
Instead of a .100 50 pin, it uses a .156 44 pin connector.
I don't know about the 902 though.
 As I recall, it should be similar to the 800's. I have
a 900 series drive in my Nicolet NC-80. If you have an
extra, I've been looking to expand my machine to a dual
floppy. Doing disk copies are a real pain. The machine
has only 12Kx20 of core memory. Not much room for a
bunch of disk buffers.
