You don't need modify the TurboR motherboard, you only need to make a special cable for using with the original plastic bus, with a new pc floppy disk-drive.

I also have a broken drive, that could'nt be fixed with a belt. I did'nt want to alter the machine that much, so I decided to make a drive connector converter.
Here is the result:

I hope for your sake you've isolated & mechanically fixed that piece of circuit board - touching random points on main board (or elsewhere) with diskdrive signals is a good way to send some electronics to heaven... Crying

I just came by this topic again and noticed that it was never updated with the solution.
For future reference here's a description.
