'Disk drive documentation'

Hey guys,

I have been tasked with adding Commodore 64 support to an emulator aimed at the Tool Assisted Speedrun community called Bizhawk. I have been able to implement most functions of the C64 with great success, due mostly to great documentation of the inner workings of the onboard MOS chips. For now, cartridge based games are working. I need to implement disk images soon.

However, there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of documentation on the inner workings of the disk drive that I can tell. There doesn't seem to be much information on the VIA chip used in the drive either. We plan to use a specific setup, and one specific drive, the original 1541. Do you know of any great sources of information for the drive? I know all of you here are a fantastic resource, but I don't want to task any of you with posting a complete writeup of the inner workings of the drive.
