The "new" machine you bought should be excellent donor material to your old one. Most chips are socketed on the first revisions. If it just the glue...
Second, if your drive isnt working right off the bat, let it warm up for 15 mins and try booting from it again. I have come across quite a few old drives that need to warm up after all these years. Ofcourse it is not advisable to keep using them if they need that, but it will atleast let you get the data out.
Oh, and hammer is not a good idea, if the drive don't spin up, try to "twist" the case. Sometimes old drives can be manually rotated from the outside, a few turns will get it loose. Worst case you need to ópen it and "jumpstart" the drive, although that is a last ditch effort and you really need to get all data out in one session, because odds are high that it wont work much longer after that.
