Flippy Drive & 3.5 on the same cable

Hello All

I have a modded Panasonic 5.25 drive and wanted to run it alongside the 3.5 floppy drive. I have read the instructions and warnings, I know that pin 33 needs cutting on the cable in order for both drives to play happy together.

However, I cant seem to find "where" on the cable it needs to be cut, is it at the base of the cable? above 3.5 drive?

John (who modded the drive) said he had seen a picture of it being done, but has not been able to find it. Is anyone here running the same configuration and can post a pic of how and where the performed the mod to the ribbon cable?

It would be a pain to remove the lid and swap the cable over every time I need to use the other drive.

Thanks in advance!

Paul
