{Collins} 8163 tubes

This is not exactly a Collins question but close.
I have a Hunter Bandit 2000C that is matched up with my KWM-2.  Ted  Hunter formerly with Collins built these back in the late 50s and early 60s.  Mine has low output and I wonder if there is a source for the 8163 finals or if there is a reasonable substitute?
