Is a week asking too much gettin parts
« on: August 12 2011, 06:03:33 PM »
I don't know, just stewing in the fact I can't get headers within a week, I can' get head gaskets within a week, and can't get the right head bolts within a week. Pisses me off. No racing this weekend.

Depends on where they are coming from, and the vendor. But 5 business days from order to receipt isn't asking too much.

No parts today. Maybe won't be racing this weekend again.

Yep. 3 suppliers, why should I need them?

Tracked the #'s Mark. I got disappointed when they only shipped the gaskets this Monday when they were ordered last Tuesday. wtFFFFF. Headers should've been here today. Bolts, who the F knows. They can ship the wrong stuff in 2 days, the right stuff must take a bit longer. Assholes. I'll think twice about supporting people that claim to be supporters of the Buick community. I am just taking full advantage of Mark's thoughtful segment of his board, otherwise I try to stay positive.

Header's are here, bolts are here. Gaskets couldn't make it from one state over in two weeks.

Bah - that sucks.

I ordered a new Spicer 1350 slip yoke from Drivetrain America at 4:48, got tracking info and a receipt at 5:44. :D

I've had parts with a certain vendor for over a month; little service on the phone, email responses only if prompted and zero info on what is going on... it is enough to want to sell the car and buy a Honda.

Who is the vendor? I want to know to avoid them. There's a few on my list already.
