Broken Suntour 'seven' question?

What series of Suntour derailleur is this? As you can see the adjustment screw lug is broken off the back. I can do an easy non-adjusting fix OK, but...

Where/what to look for a replacement part?

And if you recommend replacing the whole derailleur, with what? Old friction shifters & 6 speed hub are fine.

Thanks.

The Suntour Seven is an Honour with an aluminium rear knuckle.

Would be a good time to upgrade and if it is friction, a Suntour V series would be a nice choice and your cage length suggests you need a GT / long cage model.

A used Suntour GT or VX. If you want new, a Sunrace

Keep the derailleur for parts though, I recently found myself needing Suntour pulleys and a cage stop pin.

Found several on flea bay, but where else to seek/get a V-GT or other vintage? Market place didn't show anything. I'll call around local, maybe get lucky. Since it's an old Bridgestone mixte figured I'd try to keep it vintage.

Thanks for the help.

Bicycle co-op, donor bike, or a bin at a bike shop. In a town like Houston, I would hope there would be a co-op or two, maybe more.
