    I plan on keeping the knife...and the stuff I can /will use. Thanks for the info. It amazes me how someone can look at something that I see as so generic and know that kind of detail about it.

    Yeah I noticed about the mk15. If anyone DOES have the kit, they are selling for $50+ it looks like. Is there a reason they are so hard to find for that citicards model?
    Ah I was hoping my wife could use one of them, she is just about to get certified this year, and we were looking for stuff, so we could have our own gear and maybe an spare set of everything in case a friend wants to go.
    any opinion on what would be the best ones? My wife, of course, wants the pink one to work. I would like to learn to service my own equipment (I do most everything by myself these days. I've rebuilt carbs and some a lot of stuff on my cars). So you have any recommendations on what would be good to learn on?
    my wife did inflate them and leave them. How much pressure loss is acceptable? None? A little?

    Thanks for all the info. I really appreciate it

    That the Sherwood computer turns on means it's not junk. It can still be used. I'd test it though in the water and install a new battery.

    The Sherwood second can be found in the SRB 3200 manual. It's a simple downstream reg an can be serviced with generic parts if a kit can't be found. The button on the cover is to lock the purge button down and keep pressure off the seat, from my experience if that was engaged the reg would be ready to dive after sitting for ages. They are extremely reliable, I use a similar reg on my pony.

    I was hoping I could use it at least as a secondary for my wife when we drive together. I need to get this stuff sorted, serviced and tested.

    Thanks! I was wondering about this one. Sounds like it is straightforward to service then. What is a "generic parts kit"? Just a downstream 2nd stage service joy kit?

    Unfortunately the lock button is corroded and unusable at the moment, so it was definitely not engaged anytime recently.

    Just match o-rings, the seat can be flipped, as I remember, I don't know I anyone makes a kit for them now.

    Just to add, he's talking about flipping the hockey puck type soft seat to present a fresh face. I've had some older Ebay finds that when I pulled the seat, it had been flipped already. If that's the case, it will have an indent from the orifice (hard seat) and will have to be replaced.

    Service kits can be found every few months if you watch ebay. Some are third party, some are NOS. A general search of "Sherwood Regulator" should find any current listings. Worst case is buy another used second as a parts bin.
