Actually since I posted this I think I figured it out.  The Orb drive is 
self-terminated; the tape drive is not.  It uses one of those 11-pin resitor 
terminators plugged into a slot on one of the control cards of the tape drive 
itself.  I shall have to scrounge one up (or a reasonable substitute) somehow.

If anyone might have one they can spare, I'd appreciate it.  It's a 
Seagate/IBM 4326 DDS2 DAT drive.

Thanx to everyone for the suggestions.
