I'm a little late here but if you are still looking I've had luck with French Creek Marina. Here is a link that might help you or others in this search.

Beware of French Creek Marina!!!

They put a "new" engine, actually a discontinued model we found out later, and botched the installation and really messed up our engine beds.
Since then their "expertise" in installation has cost us over $8200.00 in repairs and modifications.
Far more than the original bill.
We have full documentation to back up our claims.
Our advice..... Run don't walk away from them!
And oh, btw, Volvo could care less if a dealer screws you up.

Sorry to read this. My only experience has been buying parts.

Are you still looking for MSB reverse gear parts? I might be able to help.

What do you mean by the bell housing? Can you post a photo?
