I do not believe there are any off-the shelf equivalents.

It is very likely they are are the same as the 411 brake disc/rotors, which are a Girling 64327417 for the front.

Paul,
I would be very interested to see some pictures of your AC system.

Steve, it appears you have plumbed in a new fuel line directly into the bottom of the reserve section of the tank, and is that an inline electric fuel pump?
