IIRC, those are the 1/3rd height Epson drives with linear actuator
positioners (a bit like a mini-RK05 positioner!). They were also used in
the QX10, and the techincal manual for that machine (which I have)
contains schematics, etc.

However, 320K DSDD sounds like a 40 cylinder format to me. Are you sure a
PC 360K drive can't read them?
