wastegate support

Engine

Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3 stock; Total Mileage: 87,000;

I have a leaky wastegate on my '86 911 turbo. We tried to rebuild the wastegate but could not find any rebuild kits or shops that we could ship the turbo to for rebuild. We did consider some of the newer aftermarket wastegates but they would have required some expensive cutting and welding to fit the '86. I bought a salvaged wastegate off another '86 and it seems to work pretty good. I would like to know if you have any sources for rebuild kits or rebuild shops to support the '86 - '89 turbo cars. Porsche will gladly sell you a new wastegate for around $2 thousand dollars but I don't want to consider that as the final option just yet.
