How common was the D-3 camlock on the hardinge DV/DSM? Was it an option on the HLV?

HGR has stripped 59 with a camlock on clearance. I have a like new 59 turret machine with the taper nose. Would be great to swap but dont want to buy the machine and spend a small fortune shipping.

I know nothing of camlock spindles on Hardinge machines except that they are rare. Does the spindle still have direct 5C collet capacity? I wonder if there are camlock step chuck closers or if the spindle only takes standard capacity collets.

Some years ago, a guy who bought a Hardinge machine from HGR told me they arranged very cheap truck shipping for him, making it a bargain overall.
