    You might find info re the Aquilon here:
    AMF Swimaster MR12 it was probably a Spiro model

    Re the other goodies. If you can find a decent re-chrome facility you may very well have a good find. I went through a similar experience years ago; but where I live it was too expensive to have them refinished. The MK5 DIN fittings are certainly rare and may have made the purchase worthwhile by themselves. @halocline was looking for a MK5 DIN fitting recently.

    I have a small stock of MK swivels turrets, caps, and swivel retainers if you're in want/need.

    I'm looking forward to your progress.

    I bought a whole bunch of stuff from a guy that wanted to get rid of some old things, and I paid about US$110 for it. And it is a lot. There are about 14 MK5's, some 109's, in various stages of decomposition, and a lot of parts for those, and then those Aquilon regs.

    There was also a MK14 or something, and an r190.

    Altogether a lot, and a lot of work, but with this I can make some fully functional MK5 din regs, including the 5-port swivel.

    Score.

    @couv weren't you looking for a 109/156 "S" badge?

    @buddhasummer They are always welcome, but I've replaced my missing one recently.

    @Diverspoint are the 'S' insignias extra parts?

    Not sure about the "S" es yet, as I cannot say how many of the 109's can be restored. The bag of parts is diverse, so I need to figure out what I can do with the loose parts.

    Can anyone say if the saddles for the DIN and yoke connector are the same?

    BTW, I think I have 2 of the environmental model.

    if you mean MK-5 yoke & MK-5 DIN, they should be... It is the MK-5 DIN assembly that is somewhat hard to come by...

    The schematic doesn't show a different saddle if yoke or DIN same part number 10-101-050.

    I should have said that yes. Sorry.

    I have not had time to look into it yet, therefore I thought to ask. This means that I now should have 4 DIN MK5s, once they are ready.

    Thanks for the answer
