We will check our vast historical archive (read: piles of crap) at 23b.
One suggestion: Those old components are going to be pretty oxidized. You
might want to consider using a water-cleaning flux solder instead of rosin
The originals would have been machine cleaned from the factory, and the
water-based flux is both easy to clean with water+toothbrush and more
aggressive at cutting through oxide and crud. Just be sure to wash it when
done, as it is mildly corrosive.
