Great history and great equipments!
I had one HP1630D and now the HP 1650B.
The first, as oscilloscope, had, if I remember well, a difficulty with ranges or probes. Something is not variable, what makes more difficult to work with it, at least to me, that bought it more for its HP-IL connection.
The other has an unbelieveable mistake: the operational systems is on flopy disks. My one sits, now, on bench, waiting for a new floppy drive, which is not the usual 3.5 floppy, as its power cable is not separeted from the data flat cable.
As you seem to be acquainted with them, do you have any idea how to replace this floppy disk unit?
