Ok, thanks! My guess is without pressure the disk just floats along the
head, the problem I was running into was that the disks would get
grooves in them after running in the floppy for awhile and the head
would get dirty. Probably because the head was pressed against the same
track constantly as the pad was always down.
Finishing up the cleaning today, will then check the system and see what
