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?
