Swami John, ;-)
A friends family resides outside of Kashmir (hope I spelled that
correctly). Would their intervention streamline this transistion ? They
often ship to their son with few problems and are willing to assist, this
assumes that the part is located close to their residence.

   If you're up for paying duties on around 70% of *new acquisition
backed up by *the original (NOT a copy) manufacturers invoice* -OR- the
right amount of discrete 'speed money' to the right person (you hope),
which 'speed money' will be a substantial fraction of the original
and *then* you pay the re-crating (because the customs guys tear this
stuff apart and then throw everything back in what's left of your box and
some guy from the villages comes and slops 3 feet of cheap tape on it...
and then you pay the actual shipping... *then* you deal with customs
in the US... AND you pretty much need to be there to take care of the
little 'derailments' as they continually arise. Doing this long distance
with no representative there, would be impossible.
