Hi Folks,

Numerous responses pointed me at Sun Express and one of the first had
with the actual part number which I ordered just about immediately.
The were pointers to other places to order the part both a little
cheaper and more exspensive. I'll list those below. The actual Sun
part # was...

#540-2767 Ultra disk drive bracket kit $25

It just came in and it does the trick. I received a warning about not
using internal drives due to heat disapation but external is not an
option at this point.

Thanks to all who read and took the time to respond.

Some of the sources suggested (but not limited to) included...

Sun Express
MTI 1-800-999-9684
Solar Systems,
Western Scientific 800-443-6699
Applied Digital 800-724-2692

Thanks especially to...
