Default 32 - 36 Water pump pulley seal

Does anybody know a source for the felt seal 18-8542 and the retainer 18-8540 that fit in the back of the water pump pulley? I have a bunch of rebuild kits but all are missing these parts. Hard to get the retainer out without ruining it!

It finally dawned on me a few years ago that unless the retainer is damaged it does not need to be removed, just the felt seal. NOS felt seals compress readily and can be installed with the retainer in place.
