Except ours still has all the original guts. The one on the Midway was 
smashed to demilitarize the unit before turning the ship over as a 
museum. I contacted them when we were looking for technical manuals. The 
dosent is a ex navy tech and adapred some comercial motors for the reels 
and built a simulator to drive the reels and the indicators. Every 
national stock numbered item has a DEMIL code assoicated with it and 
determines how it is to be desposed of. Most of the computer equipment 
calls for it to be made unusable. I think ours were savved because they 
were bought directly from UNIVAC and belonged to Johns Hopkins rather 
than the NAVY. When they get the USS Adams (DDG 2) Museum in 
Jacksonville it will be inteeresting to see how the 1219s in missile 
plot survived. They might be the only others left.
