PCB
When it comes to Match Hard Drive Parts for the PCB I Match the 5 Digit Code printed on the sticker located on the PCB by the IDE Pins e.g. M8FYB

Matching Replacement hard drive HEADS

For compatible read write heads I match the CODE e.g. YAR 41XW0
X Represents any Character
I also match the first & last digits from the four letter code KMCD
Followed by the three letter Alphabetic Code AAA

I have also had great success using heads from other model drive i.e. Maxtor DiamondMax Plus II SATA Heads working in a DiamondMax Plus 9′s and vice versa using the Above Method

MODEL Numbers
The Actual Model number of the Maxtor Hard drive is the number above the longest bar code e.g. 6Y120P0XXXXXX
Once again X represents any character
