  • The race is on
  • Just ordered the same $6 eyelet for the steering box column rebuild from both Dennis Carpenter and Just 8N's.
    Naturally it's already torn apart and was in the reassembly process.
    See who gets here first.

  • Re: The race is on // Not Really
  • Steering box eyelet I ordered from both Dennis and Just 8N's is about the size of 7 dimes stacked up.

    Just 8N's said it had shipped the same day as ordered.
    Tuesday of last week.
    Here it is Sunday.
    Now if it shipped USPS, it should have been here Friday, Saturday at the latest.
    Sunday afternoon and the tumble weeds are rolling across the dusty road as the wind blows.
    Still no parts.
    As for Dennis Carpenter, no idea at all.
    $1.70 price difference between the two and both running about $10 for shipping cost to basically send 7 dimes across the country potentially in a padded envelope. If it got sent FedEx, I don't expect to see it until next Thursday at the earliest.

  • Re: The race is on // It's a tie.
  • Dennis showed up in a small 3x5x8 inch box.

    8N's showed up in a 7x9 inch padded envelope.

    Last I heard, tomorrow is 103 degrees.

  • Re: The race is on // follow-up
  • Both parts from Dennis Carpenter originally.
    It just hit 104 degrees and waiting for the shade to come in before I go play.
