WTB King KI 208 VOR/LOC indicator

With all of you panel-upgrading types out there, someone has to have a decent KI 208 sitting in a box somewhere.

My KI 208 developed a sticky needle (common ailment) and it's not economically feasible to get a new meter installed. I need an indicator that functions accurately and smoothly, but it doesn't have to be a beauty queen. This will be a second unit to take me through an old-school panel instrument rating.

I'm familiar with options in eBay, Texas Air Salvage, etc. Let me know what you've got and a price, including shipping to 85140.

Brant Aero pulled a working KI208 from my plane a few weeks ago, and it's probably still on their shelf.

(FWIW, it was always a little more accurate than my KI209 for tracking a VOR, but I don't know if that was the indicator or the old KX170B nav radio attached to it.)
