[Schlumpf Questions] Hub numbers

sorry for the multiple posts on related subjects, but i figured people
using the search facility in the future might find things easier.

Does anyone know how many Schlumpf hubs are out there? Or what is the
highest serial number that anyone here has? I have 000159, which I
think is a Mark II hub, but if anyone knows when/what number things
changed over at I'd be interested. Any info on what the changes were
would probably also be good.

Mine's a second generation hub - serial number 00054.
900th post!
From what I remember from previous posts, the first generation hub was
recalled by Mr Schlumpf because on some occasions it would suddenly
disengage. The second generation hub rectifies that fault.

I'm sure some people out there know about this than I do...

I think the recalled hubs were recycled with new internal bits but using
the old hub casings. Apparently they were really expensive. So I
don't think the serial numbers are an accurate reflection of whether
it's a 1st gen or 2nd gen hub.
