I like buyng from Amazon .. 3-4 weeks ago I ordered a 2- 1/2 gal gas can with spout ,, it was a sent back one from some one else and marked down.. I go for these marked down ones and so far have never been taken.. but this time the can came with out the spout ,, I called in to Amazon about it and told them it did have a spout and also it said on the shipping that I could not ship it back,,, amazon told me to keep it ,,so I kept it at and ordered the spout by its self and saved $10 ,,


Directions are just another mans Opinion

Free books. Last year I ordered a series set of books titled Bosch thru Amazon. There was supposed to be 24 books, but it only had 22 books in the box. I contacted them (email) and they said that they couldn’t get the 2 books and would refund my money which they did.
I then asked how to return the books, they said they weren’t worth the shipping cost, so just keep them. I’ll order the last 2 books when they are published.

I forgot the original topic but I will post this anyway. At one time you could ship larger items by bus. It was cheaper at the time.

I don't know if it is cheaper but if you have an odd size/shape item Greyhound is still an option. Such as a bumper. Stick a tag on it and they will ship it. I know guys that take a golf trip to Florida and ship there clubs on Greyhound ahead of time so they don't have to take them on the plan.

Try shipping items to Canada!
As to wheel cylinders about 10 years ago I went to NAPA and asked for cylinders for a 49 Chevy. How many do you want? I'll take four and do you have a master as well? Yes. I'll take it too. These were Huck type cylinders which are harder to get than Bendix.
Picked up shoes and flex lines at NAPA as well. Maybe those days are gone now.

I know from experience that shipping to Canada is not cheap. Years ago I said that if someone donated to the Stovebolt I would ship them the radio from my truck. It worked BTW, the shipping was almost as the donation. ohwell

I had to revive this thread. Just for therapeutically reasons. I just tried to buy 1 wheel bolt for my Dodge project truck. Being an old Chrysler product the left side lugs are left hand thread. I could find the correct lug bolt in right hand thread at the local parts stores. I even found the left hand thread version on multiple online sites. It didn't even bother me too much they wanted to charge me $6.95 for one bolt. What really pushed me over the edge was the cheapest shipping I could find from any of the online sellers was $8. One online Mopar parts place wanted $20 to ship one bolt.

Shipping costs are really getting out of hand; understandably -- sorta. It is a total let down when you find something and it has outrageous shipping. And you don't really know (sometimes) until you get to the "checkout" page. Blah .........

Try shipping parts to Canada. Not only will Customs charge duty plus tax but shipping is outrageous.
