Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus SHQ - correct lens mount diagram

Hello friends, after disassembling and cleaning dust of the lenses in my Kenko teleconverter (Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus SHQ) at final assembling were changed lens position, and their installation in the wrong order.
I would like to ask you to provide a diagram of the correct position of the lenses in this teleconverter.
Thank you for your helpfulness.

The Kenko teleconverter you mention is widely believed to be identical to the Tamron-F 1.4X Pz-AF MC4 teleconverter. So that may be one route to further research.

I'm sorry I don't have a lens diagram. They appear to have few elements I have one of the Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x's, but I'm not tempted to disassemble it, sorry.

The review page doesn't have any clues for the orientation of the elements, but does show that other brands seem to be the same TC.

Also, the official Kenko page for the teleconverter.

People say that it is the same as the Tamron 1.4x.

It is definitely the same (except for coatings, maybe).

I have had both the Kenko 1.5x and the Tamron 1.4x. They were definitely not the same. I got rid of my Kenko many years ago, and bought the Tamron. I don't use it much and may sell it, though.

The Kenko Pz-AF 1.5x Teleplus SHQ (not any other model) is very much the same as the Tamron-F Pz-AF MC4 (not any other model) in optical construction. However, they have had different coatings or maybe just different coatings at different times -- I think there were a few generations of them. I've seen them with different number of contacts for instance but otherwise the same. I've compared these two side-by-side, taken them apart, they are the same.

Friends, thank you for your help. You have solved my problem excellently! Kenko is now as sharps and clean as before.
