Hello! First post. I am new to vintage computers but I have worked on some from my childhood. Recently bought a Kaypro II. I read through tezza's FDD woes and have come to conclusion my problem is different. In this case neither LED works from either Drive A or B. The spindle spins and never stops when disk goes in. Service manual implies that I may be looking at a logic board failure but I haven't done any extensive troubleshooting.

To save time I bought a known working drive on eBay. Until it arrives, any thoughts?

Thanks in advance!
