Best place for E-TEC spares for export

With the demise of the E-TEC range for sale, where is the best place in the UK to order a selection of engine spares from? I need to make a list but likely to be nothing exotic just a few bits and pieces that I need including a water pump kit, filters, some fuel system cleaner, I want to get some thermostat covers etc, but I need somebody who will round up what I need, pack it up suitable for export so nothing gets smashed and send it to my nominated freight agent for forwarding.

Any experience on the general availability of spare parts would be interesting too - are people pulling out of Evinrude now?

Thanks

Iíd still try South Coast Marine. I think Mike Vincent has retired now, but the business is still going. If you need any help, drop me a PM. More than happy to do the legwork for you.

Not had any issues with former dealers supplying new or second hand eBay bits.
