Ernie:

You have valid points about quality of purchases and timing. I have been fortunate to have some good Pelicans that live nearby and have been lucky to pick up some good used parts from them and visa versa. It really helps if you know whom you are dealing with and that they are reputable. I guess I would recommend first that you get involved locally and see what is available around your area.

E-bay is an option, but be careful. Check the sellers rating and read the comments.

As far as the Pelican classifieds, it does sometimes take a while for the exact part you are looking for to come up. I have also found that once it comes up, you may have to act quickly, otherwise someone else will snatch it up. I would suggest that you post a WTB ad. Ideally, you should be the first in line for all the respondents, that is, unless your thread is hijacked.
