Thanks Erwin. A little difficault to tell but it does not look the same. Here are some pics:
It's a model III j box with the level sensor.

Jerry or anyone else. What is a resonable price for something like this?
Sadly these are not worth much any more, in my opinion, unless you have a 3A sled to use it on.
This one looks to be in great shape, virtually new.
The problem is you've got to figure out how all those connectors are wired and then mate it to the bottom connector.
Those top connectors are not used anymore for the power, FF and other options.
Get what you can for it.
This seems to be a 'whatever-you-can-get' item.
If you need a j-box you can make one from the "right connectors" and a fuse and some parts from Radio Shack.
Maybe hold onto it until you find someone who has a 3A and needs one then see what you can get.

If you are good in electronics or know someone who is. these boxes can be very handy.
I used the smaller part, with the electronic bubble level, to make a level indicater with LEDS. This is very easy, with the right chip, LM 3914
(http://www.national..../LM/LM3914.html) you can make a nice little box, which is sensitive to the angle and which you can mount on your rig.
I build this when I sacrificed my IIIa system and still use this on my LCD, it has 4 HiBright LEDs on either side of a big Green LED and it is very helpful to see from the corner of your eye.
The bubble level is sensitive to speed changes so not always reliable but until now, I have been very happy with it.

Basically, the level is mounted to a place closer to the post, to avoid speed/acceleration-interference. my level is mounted on a plate under the monitor attachment (Yes, I have a Franken-rig ) and a coiled cable goes to the little box with the LED's and the display-IC board and this is attached with Velcro on my monitor, or anywhere i want it. Can be handy for some extreme low or high shots to re-position the LED-box.
