Seiko 6117 mainplate

Question

Trying high and low to find a new mainplate for a 6117 . The old one was very badly worn in the barrel arbor. Tried to do a bushing for it but failed. So now i am trying to find a better one. As i said i have tried to locate one but have run out of options. Anyone got a tips where i could search for Seiko parts. Besides Ebay. A 6105 mainplate would work also.

Sorry I can't find a replacement plate. What happened with the repair.

The lower barrel hole was so worn that the mainspring barrel was riding on the plate. Tried to ream it and putting in a jewel. But because the hole was worn  the reamer did go sideways and the hole ended up in the wrong place. And the back of the mainplate had two different thickness where the barrel hole is. So making it extra hard to make a bigger hole.   So have to replace it.
