Re: Marque AMPICO

In 1990, at the AMICA Cleveland Convention Mart, I acquired what appeared then to be an unusual AMPICO expression unit and companion valve block. I have since learned, from an article by Ian McDonald in the Dec 73 issue of the AMICA Bulletin, reappearing in Technicalities II, that these were from a Marque AMPICO upright.

I now have an instrument into which these parts could be fitted. Unfortunately, I do not believe a tubing diagram for the Marque AMPICO has ever been published, at least not in AMICA pubs. If you would consider sketching the tubing diagram, at least for the expression units and valve block, I for one would be very grateful.

Thank you.
