Does anyone know of an alternative to the set of 74 needle bearings for a 5.5 Eska (Sears Ted Williams) outboard?

The one I recently acquired has some issues with the bearings. After inspecting them I discovered there was 2 missing. My friend (who I got the motor from) just installed a new piston and rod and apparently lost 2 of the needles. I really would like to avoid having to puzzle those things together.
