Default Philips Trieste radio tuner spool

My latest project is a mid 60's Philips Trieste transistor radio, 2 dead AF117 cutting screen and zapping didn’t clear, so replaced with a couple of soviet Ge transistors. All working well now.
My question is, does anyone here have this model, if so, could you possibly post a photo showing the spool on the tuning cap. I’m not convinced mine isn’t home made, as it’s a sloppy fit on the D spindle resulting in a dead area whilst tuning as the backlash is taken up, also the cord doesn’t have a spring, it’s just tied off on the anchor post, but does work without slipping though.
