Need an obsolete part

Hello all,

Took my MAF sensor out to clean it today and dropped the stupid black plastic housing it mounts into on the concrete and cracked it. To make matters worse, I found out that Ford no longer makes the part. Was hoping someone knew where I could find one. As a last resort I can check bone yards.

It's the part that mates with the air filter housing on one end and the rubbery intake tube on the other end. I also managed to break the the little indexing stub off of the air filter housing so I could use one of those too. But the MAF housing is more important.

Edit: Forgot the most important part! 1996, 4.0 V6 OHV!

Cheers.

Why would the last resort be the boneyard? It would be the first place I would look if it were me. I found a local pick-a-part yard that is closing down soon and I have saved tons of money by taking a little time walking around finding all those little expensive parts, including a almost new breather assembly, for my 93 ranger.

Lol. Last resort because I'm lazy and would rather get it online that walk through a junkyard hunting for it.

You could look for it on ebay.. some wrecking yards part out trucks. So, even if you find something for the motor that you need, you could email them and ask them if they have that part and working something out.

Otherwise get off your butt and get to looking, haha.

This. I've found so many hard to find parts by doing this.
