RK07 questions - now RK611 questions

You are correct, Tony, board swapping tricked me (this time)!
I think I can forget the RK07 drive for now, and concentrate on the RK611
controller. First, I checked the flat cable from the controller M7904 (drive
interface) module to the home-made bulkhead. That flat cable is 100% OK.
The round cable from the bulkhead to the drive is NOS, and the label is
70-12292-25, so I'm sure it is the RK06/RK07 drive cable, not the RL0x cable.
Before pulling out all kind of equipment, I started with what a DEC engineer
probably also would do: run the diagnostics! So, I loaded XXDP and ran
ZR6A??.??? which is the test "RK611 diskless controller diagnostic #1".
Here is the output.
RK611 DISKLESS DIAGNOSTIC: PART 1 CZR6AD0
ATTEMPTING TO CLEAR CS1 WITH A SUB CLEAR
BUS ADD INCORRECT
PREV EXPECT ACTUAL
VALUE VALVE VALVE
013776 000200 100200
So, there is already a problem with the RK611 controller reported after the
diagnostic runs some 5 seconds! A few months ago I scanned a pile of XXDP
doc, but the ZR6A et al. was not amongst them :-(
I am not sure I have a spare RK611 controller board set (going to the attick
after this e-mail), but can somebody tell me which board is likely to be suspected?

Do you know that the controller and cabling are OK? Or could the fault
not be in the drive?
