Tony, why so expensive? Does it take 4 1/2 hours to make one of those?

Unfortunately I get them from another supplier. I make almost nothing as it is. But they do their job well.

I can always say that the price really does not matters when the plastic one breaks and you over heat & seize the engine

lol^^^

It's a beautiful piece. I'm a machinist. I'm not sure where the price comes from. An awful load of money for simple insurance. I'd be inclined to just replace with OEM. Should be done every 10 years anyways.

Thanks Tony. You should take one of those to a machine shop to have more made. I bet you could offer as nice a product at a fraction of the price and make much more on them.

gear cutting machines are not cheap to buy and run, but eek... While I agree 455 + 60 is cheaper than an engine rebuild, its not peanuts either. :/

So, those can't be made using a CNC machine?

A decent CNC can make anything of course...

Re-read twice, post once... :D

Love the new front end to the old website Tony. Some formatting issues for me, but its a great start and much more modern, good work mate!

I was still recovering from all the Holiday activities .

Thanks for the comment on the TDRRZ site. I just need some more time to add to it. I use that as an informational section and the other site for e-commerce. I am old school on the cart system.
I do not want the processing to be automatic in case we are out of a part or there is a delay. That way we are in control of everything and can give the customer better personal service.
No longer a large business and want to keep it small.

I want one but, do I need one? Do the stock gears break?
