Hi I was given some old BCD parts and among them was this BCD valve.
I guess it should have been covered with rubber or plastic.
Can any one ID it. Thanks.

It looks like an Aqualung / Seaquest type power inflator.

Found out. It's a Subacqua valve, but the external rubber cover is lost.
If anyone has the service manual or explosion diagram, much appreciatted.

Of course, but you do not live in South America. So, your recomendation could perhaps not fit here.

Not just in SA but in many parts of SE Asia as well.
Can you see a way to open it?

Muy bien. Most impressed.
All you need is to replace the O-rings and apply some grease to the moving part.

It seems that the inflate and deflate button retainers are missing from your photo

I had to modify the Deflation valve because it broke where it screws to the o-ring cap.

This is the same valve than the original photo, maybe a little older, but this has the rubber cover.
