Disk idea for my 11/34

Hi all,

I got a UNIBUS ESDI controller and I'm currently shopping for a disk drive
for it.  What I was thinking of doing is mounting a bracket inside the
BA11-K and powering the disk drive from the BA11-K power supply, just using
a molex connector to one of the unused harness connectors on the power
distribution board that supplies the correct voltages.

Would doing this pose any sort of problem? i.e. violating amperage limits
etc?  It would probably be something like a Maxtor XT-4170.
