Thank you Nigel, I've also taken a gamble on one of these units and  am
keeping my  fingers crossed that it has a Rb standard in it.
The  service manual is most interesting, it looks like I could use one of
the two  'loops' to lock a different OCXO,  with a little tinkering it could
be a  very useful unit as there's plenty of space inside for additions  and
modifications.
Are these the references with a rubidium oscillator ?  They seem to  have
similar models with OCXOs etc.

Hi Clint,
 
As far as I know, from the outside they all look the same and that's  the 
problem, there's no way I can tell you from the available photos whether or  
not those references have the rubidium oscillator.
 
I'd like to think they do, and will keep my fingers crossed for you, but  
unless you can get more info from the seller it'll just be a case of wait and 
 see.
 
Chances are that if the original batch was supplied with the rubidium  
modules then these will be too, might even be part of that same batch as I said  
earlier, but there's still the possibility they might not be the  same or 
might have been got at somewhere along the line.
 
I've just found an online photo that will show you what they "should"  look 
like inside........
