Do you need 1 or 2?
I have a couple that the center holes are distorted a little, they have rust pitts. But very usable with a little handi work and a ball pein hammer.
That is my listing on ebay. I can not remove the extra from ad because of the pictures show them with ad.
I can take a picture later if your interested?

There are also two metal (steel?) disks that fit into the back of the caliper body.   The nuts for the slide bolts tighten against these.  They aren't shown in the diagram, but maybe that's what's missing?

Bike bandit has them listed as part of 7_8_9 assembly as plug they were not in either caliper on original bike so maybe I'm looking for something that doesn't exist

Oh, there they are.  #8 in the partzilla diagram?  You definitely need those.
