Alive and Kicking!! B2000CR V4 is back!

Thanks to all of you for helping me to back this beauty to live again, like always happens it was for the corrosion in the CPU contacts.
I need another hand from you, can I use the cable from an 1.44 IBM PC floppy with the Amiga 2000? if not, can it be modified??
Thanks again

Just open the connector in the end with the twist, undo the twist. Then instead twist wires 4-6 and crimp it back.

Only for the ones that support two internal drives, a2000/3000/4000. The single drive models should use an untwisted cable.
