When I am having a hard time or need interchange info I use the catalog at www.rockauto.com to see what is commonly available and/or get part numbers. I normally prefer to buy my parts over the counter as usually want them NOW but prices on rockauto look pretty good if you can wait for shipping.

there's a place in DSM called "City Brake/Import Auto Parts" and I just got 2 from them. they use different suppliers than the chain stores, and they always have the right parts if I ever need to specify stuff for a '85+ ea81 too....

Maybe they are just getting hard to find where you are, but they are still in production. Try Wix part number 46016. Parts Plus carries them, sometimes autozone does, too, but they seem to prefer Purolator, Fram and Bosche.
