This is a copy of an email for a Lobo 8" enclosure with Shugart 800 drives in it, for reference purposes. Not sure what system this was attached to, need to check the manual. This is the 2nd time I have found the drive 0 jumpers to be a lot different than drive 1, see my thread on the Intel MDS 720.

Here are the jumper settings:

Drive0: installed ‹ DS1-T1-X-B-A-Z
Drive1: installed ‹ T2-HL-800-DS2-T3-T4-T5-T6-T1-X-B-A-Z (this drive is at
the end of the cable)

Drive1 also had a drive_ready modification which resulted in pin22 being put
on pin4 of the interface connector (jumper R cut; wire from R to pin 4).

Given this configuration I'm not entirely sure what system this might have
been used in since the drives are set so differently.
