    You are right!:(
    Still looking for a payable one or one I can trade (for example that special yoke against an original MK5 DIN Adapter), but even more I'm looking since years for a MK8, which might have some interesting technical aspects, because otherwise I have no idea why it had been brought on the market.....

    :-( I sold one of those for a very low price a few years ago. I rebuilt it and used it as my tire inflator/tank pressure checker for a few years; but the pneumatic yoke was not quite as convenient as it was meant to be. I wish I had kept it for you.

    Funny I found this thread. We're getting into the same project at the same time. Look what arrived at home today. Still a couple weeks till I get to see it in person.

    It's neat to see two seemingly pristine Mk V's. Amazing that the are still regs of this age in this condition out there.

    Good luck with the rebuild.

    The first stage does not look as a MK5. What's that?

    This looks exactly identical to my first reg, which i did purchase in 1975, and I am still using with great satisfaction. Unfortunately, after more than 1000 dives, my one is not in so nice conditions...
