Parts-prices vs. quality

Postby Stevo944 » Tue Oct 22, 2013 6:58 pm

I've been replacing clutch & rear main seal in one of the loboys and am almost finished ready to start the second one. In looking at prices at various vendors sites there is quite a bit of difference in prices-a pressure plate for instance varies from about $100.00 to over $200.00. I guess my question is do all the parts basically come from one place-or do the various vendors actually deal with multiple suppliers-some with better product than others? Anybody know?

The cheaper ones are usually imported from China....The more expensive are from the USA....I recently used a USA remanufactured Pressure Plate and Clutch Disc.(75) no exchange, free shipping...A USA Graphite TO bearing and Pilot Bushing from TM(90)site sponsor, and a Rear Main from the forum guy tst....(Tim)(46 WITH SHIPPING)....It seemed to be the middle of the line and all US....Not recommending just saying what I did...Works great...Dave :D
