I expect that this has been discussed before, but I did not find it on my search of the Forum.
I am rebuilding my Laser 28's Bukh Dv8. I need parts. the new dealer in SidneyBC wants $400 for piston rings, over $100 for a thermostat etc. When I replaced the water pump two years ago I ordered it from the original manufacture at less the half. I would doubt that Bukh manufactures parts that are not specific
to the Dv8. Sure, I want to support the Bukh dealers and need to purchase gaskets and some parts through them, but not held hostage! Those of you who have rebuilt this engine surly have some knowledge of where I might best get parts. I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thanks
Bob

Can I add on "ditto" for the saildrive too?  I need gaskets and appreciate those who have created solutions but if we could find the pats it would make it easier for those of us who are mechanically challenged. :)

You might try searching on DV10. You'll find in the forum history that these are the same engine as DV8.
I find this place in UK on my search and get a reasonable parts sheet when I click on parts list https://shop.tnorrismarine.co.uk/collections/bukh-service-parts
In the past I have also investigated places in Denmark for parts but their web pages don't always translate to English well.
Hope this helps, js

There arenít a ton of options for Bukh parts, especially OEM parts.

Hereís an option in Denmark, shipping is not cheap;
LSM Diesel

I know that LSM does not have over size pistons and rings available.

Hope it all goes well for you.

Thanks for your input. I have contacted dealers in Canada,US,Denmark and UK. the folks in Denmark that Bill suggested are a little less expensive. I had hoped  that someone might been able to identify the actual manufacture of the piston rings, thermostat etc. or after market suppler.
