Default Looking for carter mini monster parts

Hi, I recently purchased an old carter mini monster go kart for a father son project and I am in need of some parts. I tried some carter dealers but with the recent fire at Carter its very hard to get anything so I thought I may be able to get used parts.
I need #G492 brake rod, #G491 Gas control rod, #G489 Throttle wire, and #G750 Torque converter complete. These are part #s out of Carters parts list. Im sure I will be looking for many other parts but these will at least get it mobile. Any help would be much appreciated.
Joe,

Are you going for authentic rebuild or kart to enjoy. Cause you can make/buy the rods and cables and the TC can be outsorced to ebay, CL, or numerous online dealers.

I thought that I would be able to use a tc off ebay but not knowing much about these it would be easier to buy the one from carter. because of the tall tires I wouldnt be sure which one to get.
Any suggestions?

How are you going to order from Carter? Aren't they currently just a pile of charred building?

Yes they are but I didnt know that when I tried to get the part from them last week thats why I thought I would try this forum. Im sure I can fix the rods but the tc has me confused as what exactly to buy. Any suggestions?
