The guitar is a Yamaha classical 1960's nylon guitar. g to e side, or replace both sides. Thanks. Alan Levy Gentsglary@aol.com

Three ways you could go:
1. buy individual tuners (Shertler, Schaller or "cheapies" off ebay.)

2. plug and redrill the two outer holes to the standard 35mm (1 3/8th in.) used by most manufacturers

3. Keep looking for the 31.75 mm (1 1/4 in.) spaced tuners.

A forth way is to try to repair what you have. Sometimes you can buy a cheap set of tuners and swap the parts onto the original base plates
