One of the RL02 packs I have did not look happy upon inspection, so I
opened it up. Note that it's a little more complicated to take these
packs apart than simply pushing a small rod through the holes in the
back of the pack handle: You have to take apart the whole handle
mechanism to get to the pins holding the pack to the carriage in order
to get the pack off. I'll post some pics of all that eventually.
Meantime, pictures of the disk. As you can see the top platter of the
disk has a number of concentric rings and a hard crash ring. My guess is
this thing was loaded in a bad RL02 that promptly trashed it. Oh well,
one for the record books....
