Anyone know about LML Vespa motors?

I am getting back into the scooter game after a long break. my first project is a Vespa VNB with an LML150 motor. The motor is the 5 port reed valve version.
I got it parts in a box and I need to order a few things. I have been looking at SIP's site and I don't see anything specifically listed for the LML motors.
I need some basic stuff and I don't have time to screw up my order. I tried calling them this morning but I was on hold for like 20 minutes and I needed to get to work so I had to hang up.

Based on their site, it seems like the parts I need are the same as for a PX125. Can anyone help me determine if the parts I need are the same as for a PX?
I need the following:
Clutch friction plates
Flywheel side main bearing
Small end bearing
Cylinder kit (DR177, I think this one is clear)
Gaskets for both sides of the reed block (This one is also clear I think, worst case I can make them)
Carb box to motor screw (I think this one is different from the PX motor since it has to pass through the reedblock so it has to be longer than the PX rotary version)

I think everything else I need is sorted out. Thanks in advance.

LML makes the Genuine Stella. I would look there for parts.

vanislejay, there's a 2T subforum on modernbuddy.com, a site for fans of the "Genuine" scooter line. Folks there deal with the LML Stella (US name of the LML Star) all the time. They can help.

Scooterworks in Chicago are the "home" dealership for the U.S. importer of LML.
Theoretically LML is interchangeable with the P150 motors but at the internal level you are at you need experienced confirmation of compatibility. It's not luggage windshields or tires you are talking about.

In the US it is Genuine Scooter Co that sells the Stella as their own brand built by LML to their specifications (or so the marketing goes). Modern Buddy is the primary place for aficionados though there are some also in the Not So Modern section of Modern Vespa.

Stella/Star are not Vespa engines but are made in India in a plant that was formerly a Vespa plant and the old tooling was sold with it.

Got it figured out. I knew it was an Indian made motor, just didn't know how many parts were interchangeable. On the SIP site there's a detailed list of every model that the parts fit. I didn't see it at first because it's below their similar parts listings.

Thanks for the help!
