    In my experience, head alignment problems are rare.  With old drives, 
the problem is usually head wear.  The output level from the heads drops 
below the noise level inside the computer, and they stop working no matter 
what you do to the alignment.  I saw that a lot with Heath/Zenith and Kaypro 
computers, with their open power supplies.  Stick the same drive in a PC 
with the power supply in a metal box, and it usually works fine.
