I have an as yet untested CoCo hard drive system from eBay with a 1410 in it. Sadly, not the 1410A that Jason says he needs. The 1410A manual at Bitsavers notes some incompatibilities including incompatible formats for 256 byte sectors, so I presume that Jason has already determined that an older 1410 won't work for the recovery he's attempting. :(
