Mate

I just did a Google and there seems an array of parts on EBay ...( Personally form my experience second hand bits are a waste of time on a restoration . Of course careful selection of such items is an advantage. but I ended up with boxes of crap ..)

IMO best buy new and just suck it up and wear the cost~ Then of course you have to be wary of re-pops ~ another thorny path!

Burtons UK are generally a good source of new spares ~ even such places with second and bits are a lot more reputable than Fleabay! Be warned though even buying new parts via dealers on EBay can be a trap as their Ebay price is very often MORE than dealing direct ~

The only real advantage with EBay and PayPal, PayPal will back you up if you have an issue !

Good luck !

I don't think you can download a manual but Bruce Main Smith is probably your best bet for a photocopy:

Paraffin / Kerosene works well. If you put the part in a large bucket containing paraffin and leave it to soak for a while then brush off the muck with an old paint brush.
