Parts for an old Heatilator natural gas fireplace

We had our fireplace serviced recently and it was determined that the pilot assembly is bad. I'm waiting to hear back from the repairman about the cost of the part. In the mean time, I'd like to do some digging myself in case he's unable to locate the part. Our fireplace is 21 years old.

Can anyone recommend a few reputable online companies that sell parts for natural gas fireplaces?

This is for a Heatilator model# GNBC36

If you don't go to the manufacturer I'd just go with who has a good price. Pilot assemblies are a pretty common replacement item so there are a lot of aftermarket options. If you decide to replace it yourself make sure the picture of what you're ordering looks like what's in your fireplace.

You need to know visually which one you need.
There are several pilot assemblies used based on your version.
Millivolt or 24v are two choices.
