Question NEED HELP finding lower unit gears ASAP!!!!!

Hey guys-
My boat is in the shop and apparently the upper gears in my lower unit are shot. 2 teeth broke for some reason. We're having a huge problem finding the parts we need! Calls to every possible place we can think of are coming up dry. They say they are back ordered something like 3 weeeks or more! i don't know sh!t about whatever part we're looking for. Here is what my mechanic told me we need though..........

150 ratio gear, 27 pinion-32 forward/reverse.
serial #OM115972 (lower unit #?)
model #859776

Not sure what all info you might need but my boat is a 2002 Baja 25 Outlaw, Bravo 1, 496HO.
I'm truly lost in all of this part talk but this is what i have gathered from it! If you know and have whatever part it is we're looking for please email me or call asap!!!!

You don't have enough power to need a spare, but buying a good condition used (upper only?) might be your best bet to get on the water soon.

It's the entire gear set (3 gears)......and it's at least that much. Plus labor. Since those need to be replaced, I hope your mechanic looks real close at the bearings, etc...you might need a couple other (cheaper) parts.

There is a good chance we have the gear set or an upper rebuild kit on the shelf.

Normally the HO comes with an X drive, but with that serial yours is the standard version.

Verify the part number you need and check with us in the AM. Email is better, the phone will be ringing off the hook tomorrow.
