Yes, the indicator pot is the same.
> Also, how big a job is it to change out the pot assembly?
As already stated, beware of falling ball bearings. Other than that, it
just involves some soldering and catching the tab on the pot with the notch
in the upper bell housing.
As long as you've got it open, be sure to re-grease the ball bearings.
One thimble-full of grease is all you need.
