Hay every body :)
I bought an alpha 8 regulator with PX3 first stage. It was suppose to be a DVT but a glithc ocured which caused the DVT to be sent later. Now...can anybody help by pointing to a technical guide or instructions on how to install the DVT?
Thanks in advance :)

Don't hold me to this but I just looked at my SP5 first stage with DVT and you may want to let your LDS take a whack at it. You may be able to do you it yourself if you know a little bit about first stages. If you want I can take some pictures of mine so you know how it should look.

Actualy Joe (ST) gave his reply few moments ago:

I have searched through the items provided by the manufacturers to my
tech's and it doesn't even show how to install it. I personally have done it
quite a few times and know that it is as simple as removing the large bolt
that hold the yoke onto the regulator the entire assembly should pull from
the first stage. You can then remove the bolted assembly from the yoke piece
place the new DVT bolted assembly back into the yoke piece and re-insert it
back into the first stage as it was before. Tighten the bolt and test before
use. Everything should work. Please feel free to give us a call or email us
with any questions or if you need further instructions.

The unit is in Bahrain right now so its very hard to send it back to ST for this. My local LDS hates me for buying from ST...Kidding...but they dont carry oceanic so i know they would just guess much like i am about to do.
Oh...Yes..some photos would really help..Thanks :)
