Thread: Looking for IBM hardware screws + Full Height 5.25 drive

  1. #1

    Default Looking for IBM hardware screws + Full Height 5.25 drive

    I got my first 5160 locally, but it has no floppy, just a big hole where the floppy goes. Also it doesn't have the 5 screws that secure the case on. Hoping one person has both a floppy /w screws and the 5 screws to secure the case. Please PM me if you can help me out.

    Thanks..

    It is possible to use one or even two Half Height floppy drives in that 'big hole'. With no hard drive two floppies is way more useful than just one.

    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    The memories I have of systems like this always sported a full height drive. That is probably why I like the astechics of the full height drive.
