Unhappy Motor Controls

Hi:

I am looking for new control arms for a MN TTW model, dual engine controller. The controller is working fabulously, but as you can see from the attached pictures, the arms are deteriorated, and need replacing. The controller provides control to two small Yanmar engines with Saildrives. They provide throttle and gear-shift control.

I would appreciate any assistance you can provide in helping me replace these with new or workable used arms.

Here are some pictures of these arms in the hopes that somebody might have seen some somewhere.

Thanks for the advice, delmarrey, but I have tried them. They didn't respond. Many retail places on the net that I have contacted tell me that the model is discontinued and they do not stock discontinued parts. All would like to sell me a complete unit for $500 US. Cripes, for that, I might try to whittle some handles.

I really am hoping somebody has "harvested" a unit or the handles from a wasted boat.
