Just found some info on a thread I should have looked before. Amazing what’s available on the site.
Am I right in saying that the they are not available so I either hard wire a mains lead or fit a computer plug somehow?

Thank you

You will find it very hard to source one of these plugs now. If you do decide to hard wire this, do ensure the old socket is removed/by-passed and you solder/connect each of the 3 wires safely and well insulated. The original wiring may be Red (L), Black (N) and Green (E).

Connector by Pressac, certainly difficult to find these days.

I made up a new panel with an IEC socket so I could keep old panel in case I ever found the correct lead but that was 5 years ago and I've still not found an original.
