I decided to take the part number from the site I was going to order it from where it was $44 and put it in eBay and found the same seal kit for $19.75. Other than lost time using the machine it's a fairly inexpensive repair. Hopefully that's the only part I need. :D

I've done that several times with auto parts both new and used. Go to the (dealer?) sites that specialize in online sales and show you the part numbers, then plug the part number into eBay. The eBay ones claim and appear to be honest-to-goodness OEM parts and they work just fine, but at 1/2 to 1/5 the dealer price -- how do they do that???

Like the underside of a cast iron radiator where you have to get down on your hands and knees and lay the side of your head on the floor to see that it's been missed? It may take HER several years to notice, but as soon as SHE does, it becomes high priority to fix it. Wouldn't want guests to see something like that, whatever would they think if they happened to lie on the floor and stick their noses under the radiator?!? :cry:

Lots of dealers on eBay are guys buying dealer closeouts, bankruptcies, etc. They throw an offer in for the whole lot of parts and end up paying pennies for some of it when all is said and done. I just bought a $70 accelerator pump for a Mercruiser for $25 from a place that does just that. NOS, still in the wrapper. 8-)



Here's a Jeep I happened to find yesterday. :D Has a 383 stroker in it with a Ford 9" , Dana front, and some big ass transfer case. It's built to the moon. Should wheelie once I get her running. Damn fuel injection ..... if your gonna build something like this, why not go carburetor??? :x Anyway ..............

Remember my dilemma with my RotoTiller well, i started taking tires off and brought out all my sockets and tools and got ready for some heavy duty battle to fix this beast, got one tire off after 10 minutes of PB and a sledge, got the casing off on that side to....flipped her over to start the other side...cotter pins, PB, got ready to slam when i noticed something :eek2: here is what i saw...

Cold start ability, throttle response, and no float problems from running the Jeep on crazy side hills. Freetown Fred stuck with it and got that TBI 454 running...turned out to be a broken wire. I'm sure if you start with the simple things on the Jeep you will figure it out...make sure there is gas in the tank before you get too far, and then check the ignition. :D
