The pictures are all of the turbo pump but the NA is a simpler pump and the gov will be the same or very similar. The AAZ pump; there are at least three variants of this pump distinguished by the LDA or lack of it - basically if it has a domed top it's good, a flat top or no LDA is not so good......
