The only common disks that need manual parking are Eagles. However,
describing the lock location and locking mechanism is not easy in
The 167 MB drives that came with 3600's back in the old days
definitely needed to have their heads & spindles locked. Both
the spindle lock and the head lock are beneath the drive; the
spindle lock is this metal plate you slide, which engages a
stud on the bottom of the spindle. The head lock is a lever
over in the vicinity of the heads.
The Eagle head lock mechanism is near the card cage. There's
a screw you loosen to allow a lever to move over to the "lock"
position (it's labeled) and then retighten the screw to hold it
there. It's not particularly hard to find, just hard to
describe. Look for the Lock <-> Unlock label.
