I've had numerous nightmares with those cartridges in a number of vintage systems that I've got.    Broken tension bands, sticky tape...just plain bad stuff.   Plus, the tape transports in the 4051/4052 are fussy as can be.   I have a 4907 single 8" floppy disk drive for my 4051, and it works great, but I don't have the proper ROMpack module to use it with the 4052, which apparently needs a different ROMpack than the 4051 to talk to the 4907.  So far, such a ROMpack has proven elusive.

I have the Tektronix 4052/4054 File Manager ROM Packs. Can be seen here: 
I should have the documentation on them also. Only problem is they are 
buried somewhere in a cargo container.

Are you still looking for one?
