I can see that it was a long day - but you are doing good work! Keep it

Whereabouts is all this heavy lifting taking place, in the US? I wouldn't
have expected to see ICL Perqs so far from home ...

The brown one is the original Perq 1, as you now know. Since you have
take out the hard disk (14 inch Shugart, as I recall) be aware that it
should be stored upright. The platters had a tendency to warp under their
own weight when stored sideways.

If it would be useful, when the time comes, I have a couple of ring
binders here containing some ICL documentation from 1984-86. E.g. my
Perq Specialist Training Notes and a set of Customer Service Information
Sheets - for example see listing here: 

These have some part numbers and tips which might perhaps be useful.

I don't have a Perq, but I would love to get copies of any software that
could be retrieved from these systems (Still looking forward to playing
Pool (i.e. the game, with the balls) by Nigel Bond (?).
