20HP Intek Brigs and Stratton V-Twin Discontinued Connecting Rod

I have an B&S Model 407777 Type 0121-E1 Date Code 990125Y5 engine and I need a replacement connecting rod. B&S changed the crankshaft in 2004 and no longer supplies the old connecting rod. Their solution is for me to buy a brand new new-version crankshaft with two new connecting rods. This virtaually changes $40 worth of parts to $300. Quite a difference. Is there some website to find alternate suppliers of discontinued parts or are there aftermarket suppliers of such?

Plug the part number into ebay or google and see what comes up. Many stores still have old stock on the shelves.
