owner is : Dave Kinman(sp) and if you need something really special dug up, then Brent is the guy. For normal stuff, just talk to the order taker and tell them you are with 'the ACME cat club' and you should have no problem. If you do, ask for Dave himself. Really nice guy, old school service..
Clevite, Hastings rings and most any engine part,, they can get it.
We have explained about out web/bb 'clubs' and the number of members and such. And he said he would be glad to sell to us, and has or can get about anything that goes in any engine. Certainly all the Hastings and Clevite rings, and they have them for most cats. Rings for the pony's are about $32 for the D2/D4 set, this is BOTH pistons worth.
Doesnt matter which which BB(club) you belong to, you can order through this, as its' just a 'name' to the order takers, for ordering purposes.Buying power... They PREFER we place our orders in the AM(Pacific time), so that we get them done before the big order phone calls come in. They have some very large accounts that they have to talk to when they call in, their contracted bread and butter. But thats ok, as we are still important to them(the owner, he said so).
They are in Sacramento,California ,, and will do 'will call', but prefer to ship, and will ship around the world to us. If they dont have it in stock, they will get it in, it might have another 10-15$ added on if they have to get it from another vendor, or its a special order item like old eaton valves,etc. Not so bad.. Special orders are usually 3-4 days to get to them. But, they will take care of us, and give us more than reasonables prices.
