They're almost certainly 150 ohm. The only thing to work out is thwe
The termination resisotrs go from a signal to Vcc (+5V). I would start by
buzzing out the +5V line to the p[ins on the terminator socket. If you
find all one column are +5V, then the terminator is 8 idividual
reissotrs. If +5V goes to pin 16 only, then it's more likely to be 15
commoned resistors (with the common to pin 16). The latter are much
harder to find in my experience (having just had to obtain a 16 pin DIL
pack of 15 commoned 220R resistors...).
If you find that pin 16 goes to +5V nd pin 8 is ground, then it's quite
possible that the rrsitor pack is a potential divider type network (say
330R to +5C and 220R to ground on each of the rrmaining 14 pins). Such
networks are rare in floppy drives btu common in other devices.
I wouldn;t solder any resisotrs to the PCB. Yo umay well want to remove
the terminator at some point. Use a DIL header plug if you can't get he
right DIL network.
