restoring a IBM 5150 and I have a spare 130W PSU. I'm tempted to hold onto it as a spare but if anyone really needs let me know

I don't know how to price it. awhile ago they seemed to be going to crazy $80+ on eBay but I certainly don't intend to ask for that much. Id really be interested in a trade perhaps for a working full height floppy or MFM hard drive since that's what I need to get my 5150 up and working.

By the way that you have worded that, it sounds to me like your 5150 has a 130W PSU, not the factory fitted 63W one.

Id really be interested in a trade perhaps for a working full height floppy or MFM hard drive since that's what I need to get my 5150 up and working.
If your 5150 has the factory fitted 63W PSU, are you aware of the limitation that results from having only 63W of power available?
If not, then I suggest that you read the 'Hard disk drive' section of the text at [here].
