[s-cars] POS Source?

I just bought one yesterday from The Parts Connection.  It cost me $199.

When changing your bad POS I recommend applying new thermally conductive
paste to the other POS as well.
Actually, I recommend this as a preventative maintenance on working POS.
I found that the factory past was dried up and it didn't appear that there
was good contact between the POS and the bracket.

These parts are failing long before they should.  However they are not
manufacturing defects since they would have failed much sooner if that were
It is quite possible that they are overheating.  When I replace mine
tonight, I also installed a heat sink to the bracket behind each POS.

I should note that I sandblasted the bracket and when I repainted it I
masked off the contact area of the POS and heatsink.
The heatsink may be overkill, but it can't hurt.
