[AMRadio] Flyback Transformer for Old 'Scope

Does any one know where I might find a flyback transformer for an old 
Textronix 647 'scope? My Dad (W5JHJ) has one of these and the flyback 
transformer is bad. The 'scope works fine, except for this. When the 
transformer heats up, the insulation breaks down and the display 
dies. After a bit of cooling, everything works fine until it heats up again.

He's checked with Tektronix and they have none available for such old 
'scopes. He hates to junk it, but unless we can fix it, it isn't very 
useful and he doesn't have much interest in keeping it as a museum piece...
