Need Throttle Body Help!!!

I'm trying to repair all the vacuum leaks on my '88 TC. I'm replacing the EGR and the brake booster, but I've also got considerable leakage going on at the throttle body. Is there any way to re-seal it, or am I just looking at a new throttle body? If I do in fact need a new throttle body, any ideas on where I can pick one up?

Thanks!

One guy sealed his up by having a throttle shaft "bushing" made and installed.

There are some "off the shelf" seals that can be used. There was a post over at turboford several years ago with the manufacturer and part number for the correct seals. Do a search over there.
