Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Oh my, that's an old drive! I'm going to guess it's from the early 1990s, has very basic SMART capability, it's a Series 2 drive and it's roughly 700MB in size.

Re: Ceiling Fan Speed Capacitor

Looks like you'll also need some 330K resistors. If you want exact values, order 2 capacitors, 1 5uf and 1 4uf, as well as 2 .5W 330K resistors and wire as shown.
