Need Help from Down Under

This is an urgent plea to our friends in Down Under (Australia, New Zealand).
This is off topic but I have a 1971 Toyota forklift, model FG20 with a 2R engine in it.
I have thoroughly rebuilt the engine at considerable expense but am still needing a set of push-rods, valve rockers and rocker shaft. This machine was never meant to be in the USA but somehow this one wound up here in Texas and I got stuck with it. Apparently, there are no spare engines in North America to get parts from.
This is the same engine as used in a Toyota Corona, Mark II, High Ace and Hilux from 1964-71.
These engines were mainly used in Japan and Australia and not imported to the USA. I would appreciate any help anyone can offer in the way of new or good used parts. I have a heavy piece of equipment on my trailer that I need to offload in case I get an opportunity to haul some Star and Durant parts.

Thanks in advance,
Don Shilling
