    How rich are you? See: https://gsplanestuff.com/products/bendix-an5851-1-sextant-install-operation-service-overhaul-parts-manual .  The US AAC an5851-1 must be very similar to the USN MkV.  It's probably just Service rivalry that required different names.  If you can see through your MkV, and you've got the hint of a bubble, resist serious screwdriver and Allen key work until you've tried everything and worked out what everything does.  It'll come eventually.  It's amazing the number of details included in military specifications by staff officers that turn out to make very little difference in the field.  Oh! and don't forget to talk to it gently while you work.  DaveP
