WTB: Genuine Lenovo T61 era serial 2nd HDD adapter FRU 45J7902 or 26R9246

I'm looking for a couple Genuine Lenovo T61 era serial 2nd HDD adapters, the ones that take a SATA drive and have the tab that prevents them from going into a T40 era system. The tab can be filed off but it needs to be a real Lenovo one. The two FRUs that I know of are 45J7902 and 26R9246/7.

The aftermarket ones I have are being a pain (PITA). Maybe I'll use those in T40 systems.

I found a couple in my "stash". I need to sort this stuff out better. But I'm still looking for reasonably two priced ones.

Just being curious - do they adapt SATA to PATA?

These will take a SATA drive and they fit in the T60 / T61, and some other 60/61 series (Z, X, etc). they have the tab that prevents them from being fitted into the T40 series.

These adapters convert the SATA to PATA for the drives in the ultrabay and I do believe this is done Inside the HDD adapter tray, because if you cut the tab off they will fit in a T40 series and do work, and the T40 series cannot take a SATA drive without physical mods as described elsewhere in this forum.
