In theory, yes. The RZ29s will dumb down to narrow.

Yep. It doesn't matter what the drives themselves are because the SBB
(canister) they live in presents a consistent connector to the outside
world, also the BA35x never got faster than 16bit SCSI - the shelves that
lived in RaidArrays were BA37x IIRC.

The 8 bit personality module (BA35X-MG I think) has 2 50 pin Honda
connectors on, same as the stock BA350. Off the top of my head I can't
remember the DEC part number for the cable.....BC09J-xx perhaps?
