Looking for working DEC M8357 (RX8E)

I'm trying to get my PDP-8/e running a "real" OS (as opposed to loading 
programs one at a time from papertape).

I've had an RX02 drive (supposedly working) in my possession for some 
time, and I just need to find a working M8357 to seal the deal.  I 
currently have a non-functional M8357 -- I get an error code from the 
dirxac diagnostic that translates to "Unexpected Transfer Request 
Flag."  I'm not much of a hardware hacker, unfortunately, so I'm in no 
position to debug/repair the board.

If anyone out there has an M8357 they're willing to part with, or has 
the ability to repair these things, please let me know.
