Tower T-Handle Help!!

2006 Mastercraft X2 Zeroflex Tower

Does anyone know where/how I can get a replacement T-Handle (the one you pull to allow the board rack to spin) for my tower??
The dealer wants $172.99 for the entire T-Handle assembly.

I'd just like the plastic T portion

Thank you!!!

The T handle is Anodized aluminum if I am not mistaken. I had a broken assembly at the beginning of this year. I contacted GereMarie, they make the aluminum components on the boats, and I was able to order the exact pieces I needed from the assembly and I put it back together myself.

This.
There is a spring loaded, shouldered pin in there that threads into the handle.
It's held in the tower with the small allen set screw.
Remove, disassemble, new pin, reinstall.

Exactly! But how do i get just the new plastic handle (the old is at the bottom of the lake) without ordering the entire assembly?

In my first post...the T handle is aluminum and contact GereMarie, they make all of the aluminum components on the boats. They will sell individual parts.
