I’v got to figure out where I left my spread sheets, but I’m fairly certain I have the tube probably NOS. If I do it will be cost of shipping

Is there any reason you can't buy a 5V4G? There are 123 of them on
eBay at the moment. Prices start at $12 for them and go up.
I can test it for you to confirm its good if want to send it to me.
Odd, I already looked. Out of the first hundred or so hits, I found only two, and both were way more expensive than that. I'll have another look, and try some different search terms so i don't get 4WD nuts etc. Thanks for the pointer.
