OK - If you can send it to me, I'll see if I can fab from some linkages I have and other
creative parts.

I have a shipping account with UPS and can use that.

I have a complete set of RS2 linkage that someone could borrow as a template. However, I
plan in doing the install later this summer so I'd need it back. If any of you are
interested (and I know you are!), drop me a line and we can sort something out shipping
wise. In the interest of keeping all the small, hard to find parts together, I'd prefer
that it went to only one person.
