Thanks, Marc, for this advice.
I have fabricated a replacement for the foam that provides the coupling between the disk pack and the filtered air source. The original foam looked OK, but after a closer inspection, it was rather stiff, and probably wouldn't provide a good seal, not to mention the possibility a piece of it flaking off and getting into the clean space.
If the stars align right, I am hoping to be able to get the drive cabled up and give it a try tonight.
I will post and let the list know how things go when I get to this point.
Thanks to all for the comments.
