Daz is wrong himself, which is what makes his hostility so ironic. His '96 has a plastic housing, but later ones were metal. The OEM part number is a metal part, which appeared on later production and superseded the early part number. His complaining about not being able to find one is understandable, but his understanding of how production numbers relate to parts being stocked is lacking. Given that the engine went out of production in 2003, which is 16 years ago, and was only produced in relatively small numbers of a few thousand annually, it's not surprising that this part was discontinued fairly early, and why nobody in the aftermarket is interested in reproducing it. Given that I could only locate two salvage and one rebuilt engine in stock within 75 miles of a major metropolitan area makes it about as likely he's going to find a used one that's usable as I'm likely to find a Tucker 48 in my back yard.
