Default Set-up & parts for BP compound circa 1983

I have my oldBen Pearsoncompound from when I first started out hunting. Bought for me by my father in 1983. "Old style" 50lb, 50% letoff, steel cables, separate string attached to "nuts" on the end of the cables themselves. If I remember right it used a plunger and weather-rest style rest. Itook it in and had it serviced and a new string put on but the only thing they have for a rest is ether a weather-rest or one of those flipper rests. Is there any way I can use a shoot-thru or similar rest or am I stuck woth the old styles. I was hoping to use it as a small-game bow this fall.

Or does anybody know of someone/someplace that specializes in "older" compound bows and parts for them.

You are probably limited in rest selection because the bow doesn't have full centershot clearance like newer risers. Whatever rest you use should be one that works with the cock vane of the arrow out away from the riser side. Simple, quiet rests that work with that arrangement would be the GKF Starhunter, or the NAP 750.
