I just replaced mine on my 73 with an NOS unit. It is my understanding that you can get reconditioned units for around $3-400. I spoke with my supplier in Anaheim and was quoted $1250 with an MBCA discount to $1000 for a new unit (they are still available). Here in Canada they cost about $1880 and with taxes that comes to $2100.
It also looks like someone has messed with the screw behind the plastic cap, but only a better photo would tell. These things do ware out in time.
