My thanks go to Walter Moore who sent me  a drive and an HDOS boot diskette.
Lee Hart is sending me a CPM boot diskette. I have a lot of CPM software 
when I get to the point that I can use it again.
To fix the controller board, I used a scope and the troubleshooting 
pages in the manual that you sent me. It led me straight to U10. Read 
data was going into the chip, but nothing was coming out.
I'm still going to try Dwight's uploader program. I've been working with 
him for several days. At least, now I know my drive system works.
