> Does anyone have any idea why Tarbell would use their own data/clk seperator and not the one inside the WD1771 chip?Yes, the data separator in the WD1771 wasn't very good! Cromemco chose to use external data separators (on the 8" drive itself, actually) with their 4FDC, which used the WD1771. IIRC, the 4FDC /did/ use the internal data separator for 5.25" drives.
