Hi Jerome,

if the drive ejects the disks always, whether a disc is inserted or not, then you didn't cut the PIN 9 and PIN 20, that's all. You do not need to have some parts soldered out, just cut the cable or the wire on the board of the floppy

So do I... And, not working !!!
First try, simply by cutting wires 9 and 20 on the ribbon (I have some spare !): the 800k disk eject imediatly the disk.

So I remove the resistor (desolering) on PIN 20, and cut track on the board for PIN 9. Tested again, the drive still eject the disk imediatly.

I will check with a voltmeter if the track for PIN 9 is really cutted (how hard I have to cut ?).

:( :( :(
