I'm not certain that it's the same fingerwheel Doug. I know they "LOOK" the same, but I'm not sure one would properly fit the other. Have you tried it?

Let me see what I can dig out. At one time, I had a 5-gallon bucket full of North dials. Paul V. was going to scrap them!

 Sorry for butting in, but can I buy one from you?

Certainly!  Just PM me, but I have to find them first.

And for those of you that work on your own dials, I also found some of those little, teeny bakelite "Pawls" that North dials use on the pulse contacts. These sometimes literally fall off or break on North dials making them useless.

Not been to my workshop/house/warehouse in awhile Doug; sorry.  Constance (significant other) had cataract surgery and have been staying with her. Should get over there tomorrow.....
