Default Explorer 2 repair parts

I have an EX 2 that I'm trying to revive and need a source for the correct size header pin block. Does anyone know where I can get the correct size and shape of the 10 pin header. I tried calling the Minelab repair center but the tech couldn't help me out, thanks.

I'm not sure if those parts are readily available to the public, though I could be completely wrong. I love DIY stuff though, always been a tinkerer good luck!

I'd bet you could find similar at Jameco or DigiKey. 10 pin header, probably 0.10" spacing?

I purchased some breakaways off of eBay but they are a hair too big. The spacing is correct but the ones in the Explorer are round the ones I got appear to be square. I ordered a digital micrometer so I can get the exact size of the pin that I need.
