Locate a replacement drive (eBay has a few: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=m570.l3201&_nkw=5-1%2F4%22+drive&_sacat=0). Take the drive and the data cable to the PC with a floppy header, connect the data cable between the drive and the header, use one of the Molex connectors for power, and you're in business.

The drive may not be useable, but you should be able to clean up the cable.
