hi guys, i thought i would like to offer some advice
i recently had the pleasure of working on a NC fairlane V8 and to say i was shocked to say the least
at the prices of some parts.
1/ a thermostat housing $280.99 from ford
2/ intake gasket for a windsor, consisting of 2 maniflod gaskets and the 2 rubbers that sit under manifold $136.54.
well, when i found out those "RIP OFF" prices, i went non genuine and couldnt be happier
so just a word of warning, shop around and you will get good value, not this blatent THEFT.
p/s, i would like to know how the pricing on spare parts is set or justified
this im sure would be the tip of the ice burg on over priced genuine spares, any body else have similar problems??
