    What's the problem?
    Is it an older metric first stage?

    I don't think the 5000 was ever metric, at least not in the US . . . I think that is the point in time that they made the switch.

    If the problem is having the ports too close together, you might try mounting the transmitter to a 6" hp hose. It's not a terribly elegant solution, but it should work I think.

    There is a "HP port extender" that I know other divers with the same issue has used. Check with your local Poseidon Dealer and I'm sure they can help you.

    I had the same problem, like Jorgen said HP port extender. I used it with my oceanis transmitter, although it does make it stick out an extra 1/4".
