    These articles suggest ULA6C001 is a drop in replacement used on later series of the computer... Please verify this yourself, I just did a quick once over...

    It appear this newer chip is a little easier to get, there is even one on Ebay in the UK...

    If you don't want to fix it may I suggest you contact some collectors and at least offer it up to them for parts vs just tossing it...
