Default Replacement servo

Just bought a plane that the old style Futaba servos and I need to replace the servos with the new Futaba servos . In particular, I need to replace a flap servo which is Futaba FP-S6 with a similar servo that has the new connectors. The FP-S6 servo is about 7/8" deep below the mounting flange. This is for a Great Planes Cherokee 40 (1990 verson), sort of a classic that has never been completed. Any ideas would be appriciated

Have looked at They list info about discontinued servos and make recommendations for replacements. They show that the S-148 is a replacement for the S6, which really means that any standard servo should do...

You will be able to use any of the standard servos made by Futaba or any of the popular manufacturers.
