instinct to hold the transmitter over your head to get a better signal pattern
LOL...I've seen that !! ...usually followed with a few choice words too..

The servos I have are marked as follows...

S-44 II (the II is as in roman numerals) The case is indeed rounded and the wire is a twisted three wire with a end (using only three prongs) made with four prongs.
It is not much larger than today's servo size but certainly different.
I will take some nostalgia pics for upload Monday.

Sounds like the KPS-14.
Tower hobbies used to sell the Kraft equipment under their own label.
The tower Hobbies brand was all the cream colored stuff and the Kraft was a sort of gold color. I think that Kraft made some of their sport series stuff in cream color also.
The 4-pin connectors are from when all servos used to use 4 wires. The extra wire carried +2.4 volts and the battery had a center tap and 3 wires.

Look at your servos closely there may be a very small dot on one of the mounting ears. it looks like someone touched the mounting ear with the sharp tip of a hot soldering iron.
The servos that had the dot were reverse servos for when you needed a servo to move in the opposite direction. Remember, servo reversing in the TX was not invented yet.

Ooohhh the memories.

No dual rates.No endpoint adjustments.No hi-cap batterys.

I forgot all about the "hi capacity" 400mAh sub "C" battery packs and the "standard" 250 mAh AA packs.

I got the battery and chargers too...they look really different as well.
I'm quite pleased to be entering the hobby at this stage rather than in the seventies !!

I had a World Engines systems in the early 70s. I think it was 75 MHz back when you could use it for planes.

The Kraft radios were used by a lot of friends.
