Cartridge and needle help, M1620-124
#1
I have inherited my grandparents Philco M1620 radio/record player.  I grew up listening to this radio and playing records on it, and I hope to share with my kids the enjoyment of vinyl.  It came to me with no cartridge or needle. There are three wires; red, black & white, with tiny push-on connectors for the cartridge.  Would this have used a ceramic cartridge?  There are two threaded holes inside the tonearm for attaching the cartridge that are spaced 0.43" apart, see photo. 
Any advice on what cartridge and needle to use for would be very much appreciated.

I believe it's an EV-107.  I added a link to one on eBay.  

I've dealt with the vendor several times.  He's good to deal with!

It's a cartridge/needle combo.  When the stylus wears out you replace the whole thing.

Check with needle daddy to see if that cartridge comes with a bracket.  If not, check with Gary at the voice of music website.  He'll have the cartridge and whatever you need to mount it in the tone arm.
