In one of the 8 Bit Guy videos, he is trying to get a Gotek to work on a Tandy 1400 LT. I have been working on mine for hours today without getting it to use the drive, and now none of the internal floppies work (Thankfully it still uses the external 5.25 inch drive I have). Anyone have any luck with these?

It is not a good sign if the original drives are no longer working. Using a Gotek on a Tandy requires a modified cable. If it is not done correctly, it will break something or everything.

I have not used on one a Tandy. I have one I picked up to use with some IBM computers. I made some additions to it, and installed the Flash Floppy firmware on it.

Adrian Black has some videos on them where he gets them setup on Tandy desktops. I suspect the laptop interface will be the same. You can see even people with the info can make mistakes.
