Anyone parting out Apple DISK II floppy drives?

Recommended Posts

I was working on a short stack of Apple DISK II floppy Drives I marked as bad yesterday when I came across one that needs a new read/write head module (rides on the rails and has a wire connector lead to it. This one got eaten by mice but the chassis and boards are good I want to get it working again, its an early model with rainbow ribbon cable.

So if anyone has a read head from a Disk II they are willing to sell please send me a message. Thanks!

Really? This is my first Apple 5.25" head that is bad.. I have fixed.. SOO SOO Many, never had a bad head (except for maybe the 3.5" drives". Now commodore drives, I have run into some bad heads on 5.25" drives. The only reason this one is bad is mice at the WHOLE length of cable and the connectors. and some plastics..
