Herb Johnson has 460 OEM docs. From what I do remember, the 460 is a
96 tpi drive (720K), which means that you're not going to be able to
replace it with a FH SA450 (360K) drive.
Heaven only knows what the suffix means--could be a variation on the
face plate or could mean something like a head-load solenoid and/or
door lock. If you don't see evidence of either, try a plain old 720K
drive of any size (e.g. 3.5").
