I was just asking: by whom did you get taken by:
- the first vendor?
- the second vendor?
- both vendors?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

I spoke some time ago by my personal visits to Steele and even ventured to ask them if they'd be interested in a Stovebolt discount for our members. Said NO. I also mentioned they do not "personally" make all their products, who really does? and therefore they are at the mercy of those who make it. My real expensive windshield gasket for my 37 was pitiful...... I actually put the "cheap" one on and it works great.
....i will stop here because as before, even speaking facts, I was hailed as "vendor bashing".

The take here is sometimes we win, sometimes we lose but for me and my money I have found I can do just as good elsewhere.
(price the wing vent rubber!) nooo way!

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

First reply edited. Pardon my sensitivity Tim; clearly I was still smarting from my frustration with the imbalance between function and price of such a seemingly simple item.

Now that you asked, I'd have to say "both vendors" - each offers products that are unsatisfactory, just in different respects.

I completely understand.
No offense taken.

That price is incredibly high.
But, the alternatives seem to be inadequate?

That makes us “captive buyers”?
As you posted, we do not have to like this.
