tilt servo for prefab pan/tilt assy?

I recently bought one of the plastic pan/tilt assemblies available at many FPV retailers. (see pic) I was able to easily come up with a suitable servo for the pan axis, but the dimensions for the tilt servo are such that none of the dozen or so servos I have on hand fit. The is because of the critical way the servo arm is used as an axis point - the diameter of the servo output shaft, OD of the servo arm, and height of the servo all have to be correct.
Does anyone who has this pan/tilt have servo recommendations for me on ones that fit?

As bottom servo TGY-R5180MG from HK fits perfectly with two spacers made from credit cards. As top servo HXT-900 fits very well.
