Glen, thanks for the response.

The keyboard I’m looking for which I need for the 2/120 looks like this:

Part #: 540-1006-01

It terminates with a registered jack and not a d-sub. 

Perhaps maybe some late mode Sun2s used the one you pointed at... I have one for the Sun3. I’m not sure.

I also know the mouse for the Sun2/120 looks like the one for the 3, but is in black and again terminated with a registered jack that connects to the CPU directly, and not via the keyboard as on the keyboard you posted.

I’m sure somewhere, some rotten keyboard collector is using the keyboard I need with their Dell PC because the keys click with some vaguely unique hysteresis curve or something...
