Welcome to the mech Ion club! Simply put, we are a gathering of great minds who've seen fit to retrofit our Ions with a mechanical valve, replacing any electronic components in our guns, thus making them 10x more awesome.

-insert standard club disclaimers here-

Behold the awesomeness:

There is a kit available. It's a valve, bracket, and the necessary hoses. I'd post a link, but it's an MCB sale thread, so that goes against BST rules.

Just put up a "WTB broken Ions" thread. I'm sure there are tons of people who've got Ions with bad boards, or just Ions they don't use and don't want to go through the hassle of putting up on the BST.

Just make sure the Ion is mechanically sound though.

Usually, just leaks. Normally, that wouldn't be a problem, but the stock Ion reg is a PITA to take apart, since you need special tools to do so. Other than that, they're fairly durable designs.

I only need one grip screw to hold the bracket, right?

Yeah, only one grip screw is necessary. From what I've seen, the set screw on the bracket is to keep the bracket from rotating, and the grip screw is what anchors it in place.

Problems:
Missing 1/8in banjo fitting. No ASA. No macro from ASA to Reg. No fitting on the reg. On the board, the mode button is broke, but you said you don't care about electronics. For $50.

Good deal? I'd get like a lapco duckbill asa for $10, macro is like $0.50, fittings another $1 but what about the banjo fitting? Could I find that anywhere?

Talk to Yoda, I think they used different rated hose than the regular Ion uses, see if you can get some from them or find out where they got it.
