I have not been able to fully inspect my new acquisition, to check what exactly I need to replace but there are some obvious bits to consider and wondered if anyone could help with some questions that are arising:
Batteries: given that I am on Gen 1 black handsets I think I need 12v batteries?
ADV diaphragm: Have these improved I have read some horror stories as I trawl through here and RBW historic posts? Is the John Falcone hockey puck still available at all I can't find anything online about it anymore. Do I get another stem? Capt Morgan I believe you made your own, did you just use the original as a template and how did you know what silicone to order?
BOV Mushroom valves: N90 have some listed but I am not sure if they will fit the Sherwood BOV on my unit, if not can I get them from anywhere else?
MAV (Gen 1): I haven't checked yet but don't know if this has had the deeper orifice fitted or the reversed (?) spring. If not are these available anywhere, Kim has said they don't have them.
IP Gauge (to test flow rate against reg IP): N90 list 4 options, is there a particular one, thread size I will need and do they come O2 clean?
Cells: I need 3 to get stared but how many do people keep in stock for failures?
Jesus............it's almost like I know what I am talking about, which I definitely don't. Some learning curve this, wait til I have to dive the bloody thing.
