Default And the next generation owns a first gen

My youngest is 18 and an apprentice toolmaker, he's been bugging me about getting a Cummins so I finally found one that appears to be not on the verge of rusting out from underneath me and is priced half decently. It's an 89 D250 regular cab 5 speed with a rebuilt Getrag and some other stuff done to it, needs some serious cosmetics but it's solid other than the typical roof rust and a lot of parts come with it. The guy is selling everything to move to Grand Junction so he's reduced the price to where I think he has more in the transmission than he's getting for the truck so I think it will work out. Worst case, I have a donor for a manual swap on my D350. Anyway, do any of you guys have parts trucks laying around? I need the OEM shifter lever, boot, and whatever plate sits on top of the tranny for the 5 speed Getrag. The original shift lever apparently broke and someone made a shifter from round stock. It works okay but looks like crap. Any leads on the OEM stuff would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks. I knew about redlinear and partsitout and checked their eBay stores, I've actually bought a lot from Larry/Partsitout and have an email into him already. I'll check the third guy, didn;t know about him. I knew Larry was in Arkansas but not redlinear. I'm not sure why they keep tearing apart these rustfree trucks, it drives me crazy! Must be an Arkansas thing.
