Agreed - finding these pieces is difficult but we have a few good friends who are willing to part with a lot them. The tough part is restoring them to as-new condition which takes some time, but then like you we have been into this for longer than we care to think.
As you know I try to make all of the expensive castings and I am currently working with a small aerospace foundry on making us a batch of new brakes.
Most of the time we get parts on a one-by-one basis but sometimes we get lucky with a single bulk purchase and the GT40 fairy sprinkles them at the bottom of my vegetable patch. At least that's what my wife believes.
