Need some drive line parts ASAP

Our planned 3 week holiday sailing trip turned into a tear the boat apart back at the slip and then try and find parts during the holidays nightmare....

The damper plate on my Hurth HBW 150V (aka ZF 15MIV) decided to toss out springs and parts on the first day of our trip. After taking apart most of the galley to get the V drive tranny out, and break a few bolts off in the process, it seems prudent to do a rebuild on it while it's out because I never want to do this again.

What I've been searching for is a master repair kit and a new damper plate. What I'm finding is that many places are closed for the holidays, won't ship to the USVI, or don't have the parts in stock.

The damper plate seems especially evasive. It has a 6.25 inch outer diameter and 6 holes for bolts that attach it to the flywheel. There seems to be numerous 5 and 8 hole ones. I suppose I could use this old one as a guide and drill holes as needed to fit but I'd rather just put in the correct one if possible.

The tach sensor was a mangled mess, I've gotten a new one to replace it and I've acquired a rear main seal for the engine too. Is there anything else I should be doing since this is all apart?

I'd be grateful if anyone could point me towards a company that is open and willing to ship the needed parts expeditiously to me. I'd really like to salvage some of our vacation but that's not looking very good at the moment.

Thanks for your time.

Can't help you from the start.

But you have internet access and can locate a place from NJ to Annapolis where they have the parts, I can drive by and pick it up and FedEx to you to where you are located immediately.

Let me know and good luck.
