I am following an old schematic and a few of the Inductors are discontinued and cannot be found for sale anywhere. I have the datasheets but don't know enough about Inductors to find a suitable substitute.

The rules specifically state shopping type recommendations are off-topic, so I'm wondering if my question is in a grey-area.

Sure, I think it's a good question if you emphasize this part:

don't know enough about Inductors to find a suitable substitute

An answer to that will be valuable far longer than a simple shopping question.
