Need Yanmar Head Gasket 4jh4te

Long story short I need a Yanmar 4JF4TE head gasket. Mechanic tells me his distributor is saying "a couple of weeks...backorder from Japan."

I just got this news and it is too late tonight for me to check with some of the usual suspects e.g., Torrsen, Scott Power, Mack Boring.

Any idea of where I could order this online? Or from the West Coast maybe even?

Many thanks,

Howard

Here is an update, Torresen says it's a month or more for the gasket. Has to come from Japan. Warehouses are not stocking items anymore due to the recession.

I think I heard elsewhere here at CF about buying Yanmar parts overseas and having them shipped (air freighted - overnight or short time) to the US.

Any suggestions along this line?
