Sturmey-Archer compatibility...

I'm looking for a cheap set of Sturmey-Archer 5-speed internals to upgrade the 3-speed SA hub on my folding bike. I've found a 5-speed SA hub on Ebay labelled a "5-speed Sprinter", would the innards from that fit my standard AW shell? Apparently Sheldon did this, I'm just not sure what the donor hub for the 5-speed bits was.

The other problem is that the axle on the hub on Ebay is broken. As the Sprinter is(according to Sheldon) a single-cable model rather than a double-cable one, could I replace its broken axle with the axle out of my 3-speed hub, or is there a difference between the two?

Thanks in advance.
