Hmm, that's not too far from me I guess (or at least I get down to Minneapolis 
about once a month - and as it takes me close on 5 hours for that, an extra 90 
mins isn't too bad!)

That HP tape unit looks to be in the same sort of chassis as the 2114/2116 
systems & related (PSU, paper tape reader etc.). No idea about the bigger rack 
though - I've not seen a reel arrangement like that one before (i.e. such a 
wide vertical spacing)

I can't offer help with any big stuff right now (no space in the car!), but 
I'm looking around for a van at the moment, so maybe in a month or two...
