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?

ancient thread but i have this kit and two 9g servos (turnigy blue) from hk and the bottom one does not fit properly. also the servo heads dont match the plus sized servo arm impression in the base.. wish this kit came with instructions. also has two metal cogs with it that I dont know what to do with. got this kit from foxtec.

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