Hi and Welcome to the CN Forums. I've been seeing parts for these pop up on AMart from time to time, maybe post a wated ad in the mounts section here, AMart too. May take time to be seen, I'd be patient.

and the one on Meade LX 200 12-ACF Fork mount?

The Super C8 has a 7.5" 359-tooth Byers gear.

I don't think the CPC 1100 or Meade LX200 have Byers gears.. because I believe Ed Byers doesn't make gears anymore.

Here's an ad for a 12" Byers gear for $850.
