Send an email to Tibor asking about the conversion parts and/or the cost of parts plus labor to do it.

Jim is right on the money! I have called Tibor/Juracsik for spares in the past and they are extremely helpful. Last time I called having lost the special tool they give you to remove the spool. They sent me one free of charge.
