I don't doubt that the fiche lists these items...
availability, otoh, might be a bit different.  i've heard of at least two
people who've tried to buy blocks from AoA--they have had no success.  one
problem with the fiche--it hasn't been updated in a couple years, even the
dealer's "current" fiche.  the "old" ones some dealers give out (like the
one i have) is even older.

that's what he's saying!  no mark, that's not what he's asking for the
motor--that's what he's poured into it after a bearing spun. and it still
isn't done (since late summer)  don't know if he'd have had better luck
dropping it off at a dealer--probably cost more, but might have been done
by now.
