 
Accutronics reverb tank numbering system
The type 4 is 17" long and uses 2 long springs,
each of which consists of two springs joined in the middle. Thus, Accutronics
considers this model a 4spring unit. This type was the original style selected
by Leo Fender. The type 8 is 9" long and uses 3 springs. This type is most
famous for its use by Marshall® . The type 9 is 17" long and uses 3 long springs,
each of which consists of two springs joined in the middle. Analogously,
Accutronics considers this unit a 6spring device. All Accutronics part numbers
consist of 7 characters as described below.

C = input insulated, output grounded
D = input insulated, output insulated
6th character: Locking device 1 =
no lock
7th character: Mounting plane
A = horizontal,open side up
B = horizontal, open side down
C = vertical wall,long axis horizontal, connectors up
D = vertical wall, long axis horizontal, connectors down
E = vertical wall, long axis vertical, input up
F = vertical wall, long axis vertical, output up
