Looks like you can still buy them new:

New ones look so much nicer in the engine bay than the old yellowed used ones.

Daniel-THANK YOU for the quick response.

How did I miss this site during all of my Euro Ebay, backroad, salvage yard searches?!

Part has been ordered!

I think you're going to find out they don't have one. The part is still listed as nla.

I have a used one if you are interested. Pm me.
