Bought a new old stock Citizen W1D floppy drive for one of my 486 high end laptops as the 1 has head failures and the other has a bad belt, so I might take the belt out of the broken head drive and replace the belt. Both laptops use the same floppy drive, the boards are similar in functionality, except the Austin TFT has integrated sound and a modem installed and the AMS DSTN has the sound card.
Not to discourage you but even with a new belt I found them to be very unreliable.
