I had a similar conversation with them!

My conversation was pretty much the same.
I have also talked to the company which Phil (Get Gripped) sent us a picture of.
It is difficult with them as well. But the upshot of it is that the price looks good even with the postage - but they don't take paypal which would protect your payment.
They will only accept a bank Transfer which cost far more than paypal and there is no protection. Sad

I have some Toyota Prices at work for the K3 VE engine.

I will put them on here when I get them home.

Jon. I keep pressing the "Make it sticky" button, but I will be beggared where it is sticking to. Smile

Don't like the new shape Sirion much.Sorry.

I think the sticky thing is working!

@Bob

The sticky thing maybe working. Just had a look under the 'Forums' and under each of the threads there appears to be an envelope with a 'red' marker next to it and the thread being at the top of the postings.

Time will tell. Smile

On the subject of the timing chain, make sure that picture isn't one off a Tractor or a Combined Harvester, LOL!! Smile
