Looking for info about using the internal cassette port of the orig 2001-8 to attach a c2n cassette at least for testing purposes. Yes I know you can use the external tape two port. My poss plan is to replace the internal cassette with a long style c2n if it will fit. My internal drive ain't to hot. Because this is Commodore I assume you can't use a c2n on the internal connector because that would be too easy. If I find the info I need I will post..what I am looking for is a comparison between the tape 1 and tape 2 edge connectors. I have not found anything schematics-wise that I can easily read clearly/conclusively.
Thanks
Bill

Bill,
the board edge connector (J6) is on the side closest to the internal cassette and is the exact same as the external cassette (J3). See Top Assembly drawing below.
