with the variable sector size, Commodore was using custom controller 
board / logic / analogic

I think the 1571 and 1581 are using more standard drives...

not sure than in a 1541 there is more to use than a bare drive mechanic

if it's not to use with a vic20 or c64

Or could the drive be removed from the case and uses... or the Commie electronic board ditched and a cable run into the drive for the CoCo?  I seem to recall the drive itself was custom and can't be removed and used without the Commie electronics, or a new board of some kind... Frank Swygert
