    When I was doing field service we changed CT to BT and vice-versa regularly when customers bought stocked machines. Most machines just use different claws and a tweak to the Z.

    I don't have a manual for that drive, but those alarms look like what would be shown of the CRT. What alarms are on the spindle drive?
