Trying to keep my Manitou Mars fork alive...

Wouldn't you know, 2 weeks before a riding trip, the "loc-out rod seal" (lower TPC) on my Mars Elite crapped out on me... I've kept the fork alive and well this long and can't afford a new (or used) fork, so I'd like to buy a bit more time on this one; anyone have an old Mars fork or Mars parts laying around? If you look at the schematic here:

it's part #062392, contained in the bottom end-cap and is used on all Mars years and models. If you have it, let me know what you want for it, Thanks!

Wish I could afford that, but even then I'd rather invest that in newer fork. A working Mars Elite is only worth about $60 on ebay, so I don't want to invest much in it.
