    The genuine LR spring that was coming from Italy was incorrectly packed - what came was, in fact, a gear lever spring.

    The correct relay spring is supposedly on the way.

    Well, not much of a difference. Might just do the job at a pinch.


    How in the hell someone couldn't tell the difference beggars belief.

    Would be easer to assemble , you won't need anything to compress it.

    Thatís about right.

    The first thing that I did was compress it one handed.

    Anyway, to be fair to the vendor he was genuinely surprised that an error had been made when I pointed out the problem. He was pretty good about arranging for the correct spring to be posted.

    Itís not here yet, but the photo that he sent this time was the correct spring. Matter of waiting.

    Cheers,

    Hello from Somerset Dam - here for a bit of Covid-less R&R.

    I have bought a fair bit of kit from MR over the years and donít have any complaints of note. However, in this instance they didnít have exactly what I was after whereas the Italian fellow did. Same applies to all the other local sources that I have dealt with - nowadays unless itís old stock that has been sitting there for years itís nearly all Britpart or Bearmach and the differences are getting less evident.

    Anyway, going Italian was the correct decision but, in this particular case, happened to have a poor initial outcome. Previous dealing with the same crew had been very good and once the correct part arrives, hopefully, will vindicate the original decision.

    Cheers,

    Neil

    Are you saying ****part quality is improving or Bearmach is going downhill?

    Hello again from Somerset Dam.

    Iíll leave that quality judgement for others to argue over.....

    With respect to the blue box packets - I have some dim memory about leopards and spots.

    Cheers,
