Basically, doing a bit of investimagation.

Want to find out the best place(s) to get spare parts for the above.

Need to build up a stock of bits n bobs in case of failure.

... Or is it just better to buy a whole other non-running unit and strip her down into it's basic components.

Cheers for any advice.

Depends what you need and you won't know that until it's broken.

It's good to have a spare motor for parts, if you can get one cheap enough. Yam 70s are pretty reliable, so I'd look into sourcing parts at the time when you actually need them, other than normal consumables: impeller, fuel filter, spark plugs, etc. Otherwise, you may end up forking out on stuff you'll never need.
