Can I ask what you want the plugs for? I have lots of old Futaba stuff in the loft
and it would help if I knew what you want.

I "converted" one using pins made from nickel silver wire (handrail wire left over from railway modelling).  The small offset was no problem - it just gave a bit of tension that ensured good contact.
Just a case of cutting three bits of wire about twice the pin length, inserting them into the RX socket holes, et voile, an RX with pins to plug an up to date device.  Repeat for the other channel.
It is possible that the RX, because of its age, does not possess the same selectivity as a modern one ( theres lots more "legal" channels squeezed into the same bandwidth today) so it MIGHT suffer from cross-channel interference.

Like Phil I have a number of servos and switch harnesses.
Would be a shame to chop the plugs if we can help with the stuff you want.
