    Thanks but I am interested in selling some of this old gear rather than spending more on it... This seems like one of the earlier single hose regulators..

    The basic design dates back to the 1950s and it was made by Aqualung. It was replaced by slightly more modern adaptations like this Aqualung/US Divers "Deepstar" sold from sold from 1965-1969 with a little different cover on the second stage and a rubber exhaust tee.

    They are dirt simple to service and as there are really no high pressure O-rings downstream of the seat it can be services with fairly common O-rings. The seat can be flipped and you can adapt more modern seats from regs like the Scuabpro MK 2 or 3, if you are willing to do a little hand fitting. Vintage Double hose may also sell a seta that will work in it.

    The are fun to dive, but with one LP port only and no HP port, it's J-valve, no power inflator BC diving. Yours would have value for someone wanting to dive one, provided it was in working condition, but it's missing a little too much chrome to be very collectible. Regs like that tend to end up in dive shop displays where they also have some instructional value about what's changed in a single hose reg - and what hasn't.

    Thanks.. I've got too many regulators to mess with fixing this one. I should be trying harder to sell some stuff.
