I believe Rod at The Parts Connection could have
hooked you up with this part for 35-40 and with TPC,
I've never had a shipping problem.  Not so for Blau
and hence the reason I won't ever use them again.

Colorado Springs

formerly of Lansing IOWA 52151 (not michigan!).
Even gave them the right zip, but they decided they knew
better and then refused to own up to it.  Still have the receipt
with "IA 52151" crossed out and "MI #####" written in pen.
Oh and they still charged me for the "free" t-shirt even on
a $700 order.  When I brought it to their attention, they would
only give me store credit.  Piss poor in my opinion.  The store
credit remains unused.  And yes, I was working with the owner
on these issues.
