Hi Jim. Thanks for the #. I'm pretty sure i've got a set of these in my basement. It's a bad [Taiwanese?] copy of a SunTour and nothing much is interchangable. I bought a couple of NOS sets a few years ago for about $10.00 a pr. That's about what they're worth. Quality is not high and one became very balky once installed. You're much better off waiting for some original SunTours to show up. I've been using those for almost 40 years and they're by far my favorite, reliable and practically indestructible. Good luck.
