I don't think any of the single-disk CBM drives used 2114s (but I
agree - those are favorite suspects when present).  I'm pretty sure
all the units I've worked on have 6116-type 2K SRAMs or perhaps 6264s.
I'd have to go back and check parts lists, but the older dual-drive
units might have had 2114s as the shared memory between the two
