This will be about as close to drop in as one can get.

The adapter will hide under the 6532 with very little hanging

out the sides. Unlike the adapter for the Gottlieb pins.

It'll be about 1/3 taller other than originally.

I doubt you'll find any originals, other than on another KIM-1.

I'd be interested, though I'd prefer something that was a drop-in replacement.
I'd be willing to pay additional for that.
