I had the same experience on my m76.  It looks like the code in
/sys/arch/vax/vsa/vsbus.c:vsbus_attach() doesn't do the right thing
for ka43.  /sys/arch/vax/vsa/ncr.c:si_match() also looks suspicious.
If I remember correctly, the m76's ncr is at 0x200C0180, so you could
try changing both of those routines appropriately (e.g. change all
instances of 0x200C0080 to 0x200C0180).  I haven't had the time to
play with it yet...and I may be way out in left field here.  Oh well.
