25cc 4stroke trimmer help

I have the BC490 4stroke trimmer. I broke a cam tappet with a bent rod. The motor is fine. I am trying to locate a supplier of motor parts to replace these 2 pieces. The motor is available for $70-$80 + shipping all over the web, but actual internals seem to be under tight guard. Are their any ideas on how I can purchase internals for this motor?

    I don't recognize that model number. What brand? With the engine priced that low internal parts are likely not available.

    Go to cub cadets website and put in your model #, it shows 2 different year models for the BC490. There will then be an engine section to view.

    Thank you for responding on this.
     
    it's the BC490 #41AD490C912  25cc 4-stroke, 2015.
     
    The part I'm looking for is not on their page.
     
    Perhaps the actual engine manufacturer would help. On my 2 stroke Toro as an example, the engine is built by Mitsubishi.
     
    This motor is in great shape, what a waste to throw it away for a $5 piece of aluminum.

    Might try calling your nearby Cub Cadet to see if they have the parts available.
