Funny you should mention that. A spindle motor would be nice. Takes a bit of
work to get out though, and they are actually pretty delicate. If you take
the spindle motor out you should (and would have to already) take the fixed
platter out. Since it's a servo pattern based drive (with a different
magnetic coating for the servo surface) those are great to have as spares.
All 4 heads, especially the servo head. The large power board in the bottom,
and the 4 (or 5 if it's an H model) circuit boards from the card cage pull
easily. The main things I need are spindle motor, and I/O sector board.

I could definitely use those parts.
