I'm fixing up an old FT101B and am down to the last problem - very
low output on 10M. I've tracked it down to the T105 variable coil;
the slug is stuck in a (probably) bad position - I suspect from someone
attempting to re-align the rig improperly. 

If someone has one of these parts available, I'd be real grateful.
Failing that, any hints on what I could replace it with?  I have the
coil assembly removed from the rig and the coil itself removed from
the can, so I'm quite certain of the problem (the coil's bad setting
makes the input and output tank circuits of the driver fail to track,
and on all other bands this can be compensated by "mis"-adjusting
the trimmer caps, but on 10M the only capacitance is the existing
stray capacitance of the circuit, so the coil has to be set properly
on 10M in the first place).
