Default A & L Metal Value Stems

I just became aware that there have been two manufacturers of Shrader valve stems. I ordered stems from Brattenís a month ago and installed them in my tubes. At the time both the dust covers and stem caps were back ordered. When I checked back they didnít know if they would receive more. Not knowing what I know now I ordered dust covers and caps from Eckler. Only received the caps as covers with BO. The caps donít fit my stems. Brattenís filled me in on the rest today as to manufacturer name and doubtful business situation.
Does anyone know what other distributors may have A & L covers and caps on hand? Would any other of you have a set of five youíd like to sell?

Which year dust covers are you needing? A viable option may to go with originals.
