I did answer that question, as I have recently BTDT.  Happy to answer again
tho'.  Ned had 1.  That's right, one.  A lister who was once the best
supplier ($40 ea diaphragms) sold the mold to Ned (now like $90 ea), and for
some reason he can't seem to get them made.  That was about 60 days ago.
May be worth a call to him.  He may have gotten some since then.

The bad news is the only reliable supplier seems to be TAP.  Their product
is very good.  But the price is $115 ea.  Yikes!!  

Whatcha gonna do?  Cheaper than a new Wastegate, but TAP is probably making
200% markup on each one.
