There was one on Ebay last week that didn't sell. BIN $4700 That way you don't have to hunt for nonexistant parts. PM/friend me for the link.
Thanks for that, I think that may be the green one that is listed again this week for $4650... Reason I was looking for a good core, was I am more partial to Roy Szarafinski's method of 5th bearing which requires a lot more case work than the Wesemans fifth bearing solution. So was looking more for a ground up rebuild, cheers.
I would be willing to bet that Roy could find you a core and do his magic on it before shipping you the whole thing for you to finish. That way, you would know for sure you have a good core (Roy inspects them before working on them) and not be buying a sight unseen "shot in the dark" to send to Roy. Check with Roy, is my suggestion.
Yes that's a really good idea. Presumably also the machining for the 5th bearing could be completed by Roy prior to it being shipped, as well as nitriding, magnafluxing etc. Tim - let me know if you're keen to explore whether consolidated shipping on 2 or more cores to Oz would save much money? I imagine it might.
I was thinking that Roy may be the best option to do it all, but I may have to call him as I have emailed and asked him a few questions but had no response. David I do think it is worth asking the question to see if the freight is cheaper. Although I have been thinking of chasing up a freight company like C & H Freight(they advertise in Sport Pilot) and getting a rough quote from those guys too...
I just sent C & H an email requesting a quote, will let you know what they reckon David, cheers.
WW just posted an ad on his site for short blocks - plus he has cores also, and he works with Roy a lot, so you might inquire with him... not sure if Roy sells cores... he's got mine right now, and I think he mostly works on what gets shipped to him. Of course, I could be totally wrong about that, but that's the impression I got.
