Default Hacker Hunter RP38A parts

Does anyone have any IF transformers (specifically IFT 1, or IFT 2) for the above radio, or a scrap chassis that may contain one of the these?
In my radio the cores in IFT 1 have disintegrated thus preventing a true alignment.
I used a plastic adjusting tool with very little force whilst trying to complete an alignment but the cores fell apart.
Great shame. The radio was working quite well on AM, not so good on FM.
The RF alignment needed attention, along with a careful adjustment of the tuning capacitor which was touching at one end of its movement. Both of these faults were successfully resolved before the disaster with the IF transformer.
I have checked for movement in all the the other transformers and they seem fine.
Fingers crossed!
Cheers
Lynton
