I believe the headstock gears are the same whether servo shift or not. I have a parts machine that may have what you need. You'd need to take the whole machine though - no cost. Northeast of Atlanta. Good luck with your lathe.
I sent you a PM regarding this. I would gladly make the trip for it.
I've not done a good job updating this thread. My dad has had some health issues and it has just been pushed back into the corner until there's more free time to play with it. LeBlond shipped me some parts that were needed to get it up and running and it cuts and all the speeds that aren't stripped work great. The cross-feed screw and nut had been recently fixed and there's really no backlash so I'm very pleased overall. Still some issues shifting but if you rock the chuck by hand it does what it is supposed to. I was able to scoop up a steady, follow, carriage stop and some other odds and ends on ebay for next to nothing so all I need is that gear.
