Default LDR in Rhodes piano (help!)

I've got a '75 Rhodes stage piano ( MK 1 )...and everything works but the vibrato circuit. I've been told that the 2 LDRs burn out in these somewhat frequently, and they need to be replaced.

I looked at the circuitboard, and i can see they are labled VACTEC. I see that VACTEC made many of the LDR's used in fender amplifiers. The schematic of my preamp doesn't specify which LDR it is.

For the life of me i can't find the specific VACTEC model # for this particular circuit in order to replace it. I've seen Fender LDR replacements, but they look like they're homemade and are upwards of $20@.

Anyone know the # of the vactec component i'm looking for, and an internet puveyor that sells them?

thanks in advance

Ive seen people replace the LDR's found in compressors with cheap versions i.e. standard off the shelf types without problems, you could try it..?
