Signet Masthead wind direction potentiometer

Hi Folks
I have a Signet Masthead wind instrument set that the wind direction potentiometer has gone bad on. I was able to get another used instrument set and it was bad too. So I decided to tear it down(the potentiometer for wind direction). Turns out it was oil dampened and the oil got in into the potentiometer and thoroughly contaminated it. So I looked up the part on Signets site and they want $275 for it. Now we have whole Signet instrument set in the cockpit and I’m also using OpenPlotter on a Raspberry Pi for navigation as well.
I seriously thought of just dumping the whole instrument set and moving to a OpenPlotter solution, but before I do, I wanted to check and see if anybody has found a cheaper reliable solution for the signet wind direction pot? Attached is a picture of the Pot.
