I just took a look at one of my EXB-8200 tape drives. Unfortunately it
wasn't set up for internal termination and the resistor packs were
removed. It has (3x) 8-pin SIP sockets.

Bourns 4608X-104-221/331L / 4608X-104-221/331LF and 4308R-104-221/331L
parts are in stock at Mouser and Digi-Key. Those are 8-pin,
12-resistor dual termination networks.

(3x) 4608X-104-221/331 parts would have the necessary number for
terminations for single-ended SCSI:
