    I'm having a problem with my 817's select knob in that if I turn it too fast it operates backwards or skips (mainly an issue while navigating menus) or bounces around (selects forward, then backwards). It has been getting worse, but is still tolerable if I turn it slowly and carefully. I see a day coming where it will fail completely, so I'm planning for a repair.

    The radio is fairly old. I bought it used from a local ham about 12 years ago. I mainly use it in the field, but I don't abuse it.

    Has anyone replaced their select knob?
    What part number do I need?

    Thanks,
    Chris
