Testing the Floppy Drives Fit in the Case
The Enlight case has the floppy drive sit behind the bezel. This means the floppy drive cant protrude too much or you wont be able to close the front of the case. To get the depth correct, this cage has exact holes in the cage to position the drive and tighten it into place. But, just to make it challenging, there are two different sets of holes to allow the drive to seat at two different depths. If, as you close the bezel, you find the floppy drive doesnt sit at the proper depth, just remove the floppy and try the other set of cage holes. Id recommend starting with the set of holes that puts the floppy the farthest back. When closing the front of the case (bezel), never force it. It could be that the floppy drive protrudes too far.
Other cages, where the front of the floppy drive is flush with the front of the case, often have slots which allow you to adjust the drive back and forth until its exactly flush with the front of the case. Then you can screw the floppy drive into place. Sometimes the slots are a bit oversized and the small screw heads will have a poor grip on the slot.
Lets put the cage back into the PC and gently try to close the front (Figure 77). If the front doesnt close properly, we can see the drive protrudes too much, and well need to use the other set of cage screw holes to move the drive back. Be sure when you close the front of the case that something isnt preventing it from closing, such as a floppy drive thats sticking out too far. With too much force, its possible to break the bezel. You might want to close the front with no drives installed, just to get a feel for how much force it takes to finally pop the bezel into place.
