That I'll definitely try. Hope the freebie Advansys card is supported
and gets on well with others.

That *shouldn't* be correct. A SCSI bus should be linear, and be
terminated at (and only at) both ends. This is complicated in this
case by the wide-to-narrow transition before the bus leaves the box,
and the presence of the host adapter in the middle, and the LVD<->SE
electrical change, but schematically, the simplified version should be
inside | outside
internal internal devices... host adapter | scanner external
term-----------+-----+----------(host ad term off)+------------+-----term
...except in this case the wide half of the bus, but not the narrow,
should be terminated on the host adapter.
Yep, I'm more and more enthusiastic about a whole separate bus.
