Errr... what output ? the relay should only connect pins 6 & 7 of the 
cassette interface together when you do a *motor 1 and it should be open 
circuit when you do *motor 0

It might be *motor0 and *motor1 ... it's been a long time.

If the relay is knackered I can open up one of my electrons and get the 
spec of the relay for you.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a 
capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety 
labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
