Data General Nova-3

Data General Nova-3
 
We recently reassembled this Data General Nova-3 system. It is complete except for one disk-to-disk cable. Each of the disk drives has both a fixed and a removable platter. The removable packs look identical to those used on a DEC RL01/RL02 drive. It looks like it originally had an additional card cage below the CPU that was a communications controller. It will need quite a bit of TLC before it will run though.

These drives will need some significant cleaning before they can be used.
