Not so abundant left crank
Hey, I have a Giant Iguana Disc bike (2003 model) and am having a hard time finding a replacement left crank arm. The old one's square eyelet is not really square anymore, if you know what I mean...the type of crank I need is a black 175 mm. Sounds simple, but the square eyelet that actually connects to the crank is not a diamond, but a square, if you know what I mean (if I hold the crank arm so it is vertical, the eyelet is a square). I am having a hard time finding this type of crank (my bike dealer just says the eyelet is 'horizontal'). Also, my dealer (not a Giant dealer...not one for over a hundred miles away) has tried to order it, but they are sold out of them at the moment.
Is there a term I can use that would improve my search for this type of crank. Or does anyone know where I could find one?
The brand of the broken crank arm is SR-Suntour.
Also, is there any specs besides the 175 mm and color that I need to pay attention to when I eventually find a 'horizontal' crank? I have seen stuff about spindle size around 112 (mm I guess)...
Thanks for any help.
Yeah, you also have to worry about the correct spindle length for an arm that is not an exact replacement.

Not sure what term you'd use but I know what you mean. The axle hole is rotated 45 degrees from normal. I have a pair of Truvativ MTB cranks ("4D" I think) like this.
If if were me, I'd just buy a pair of cranks that take the same BB axle length.
