Some of the 5245L's used the 10544 oscillator for frequency reference. 
I don't know if that was a later option or what.  But it is probably 
worth saving if you have it.

There is an adapter, the HP-10590A, so the plug-ins can be used with the 
HP-5345A.  Of course, the 500 MHz one isn't useful, but the 3 GHz or 
video amplifier plugins could be used.
