I bet you can easily find an equivalent. I entered "thermal fuse" in google.com 
and got a whole bunch of manufacturers. Does the schematic or original part 
show it's current/temp ratings?

Did you call Texas Towers?

Final chapter(?):
After a 20-minute long-distance hold on the phone, a Yaesu tech told me 
they will not sell or replace the individual part (the thermal fuse) 
but only the entire inverter (~US$50) PC assembly.  The tech suggested 
that I simply bypass the thermal fuse.  Not entirely satisfying...but 
since I had already done this to test the circuit, I suppose I'll just 
leave it alone, button up the rig and get on with it.
