Thanks @xesrjb for the link. I am just about to mod my 6128 for a Gotek/HxC and I have now ordered the parts to make power and signal adaptor links so I dont have to alter my 6128's connections.

Thankfully the original Raspberry Pi 1 has a 26-pin header so that seem to be the easiest place to get a male 26 IDC header and it comes with a ribbon cable, just need to remove the female 26 pin and fit a normal 3.5" floppy one.

The motor on signal is shared amongst all drives. So when you access one, the others spin as well. This is an expected and normal behaviour.
